SWAT Team Called Out in Longview

Some tense moments this morning for a Longview neighborhood, as the SWAT team is called out over a homeowner firing shots Saturday morning.

It was around 4:20 this morning that neighbors called police to this home on Ridgelea Street, where the homeowner was shouting wildly and firing shots into the air.

The Hispanic man went inside his home, where police say his wife and children were.

Initially, there was concern that a hostage situation might develop.  Because of the danger of so many people being at risk in the neighborhood, the SWAT team took over.

Eventually the man was talked into giving up peacefully. The man will be arraigned on felony deadly conduct charges tomorrow.
