Arrest Made In Longview Swat Standoff

A four hour standoff in Longview ends with swat officers entering a home, and finding no suspect inside. Around 10:30 Wednesday morning, authorities responded to a home on Cotton street. This after reports that a mentally unstable man had threatened to do harm to his family members with a gun. Patrol officers and "SWAT" team members attempted to make contact with the man, and talk him out peacefully.

But after 4 hours with no word, the decision was made to go in. Officers found the home empty. Officers left the scene. When they checked back less than an hour ago, the suspect, identified as 27-year-old Jimmy Lee Mayfield, Jr. had returned home. He was then placed under arrest.
