    Dallas police have arrested a man after a standoff at his home that prompted lockdowns at four schools in the Lake Highlands area on Tuesday.

    Police said the man barricaded himself inside the residence in the 9400 block of Moss Farm Lane after allegedly threatening to kill a woman during a domestic disturbance.

    Dallas SWAT officers entered the home after a search warrant was obtained and arrested the man.

    Forrest Meadow Junior High, Merriman Park Elementary, Skyview Elementary and Moss Haven Elementary had "soft" lockdowns in place until 2:15 p.m. because of police activity related to the standoff.

    Children were dismissed from school as per their normal routine. But children who live along the streets affected by the standoff were held until their parents could pick them, the Richardson school district said.

    The suspect, who was taken to a local hospital for evaluation, will be charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
