A person wanted by police who was barricaded inside a south Fort Worth home is now in custody.

Fort Worth police spokeswoman Cpl. Tracey Knight said the standoff involved a 23-year-old man with an active felony warrant in a home in the 2600 block of Jennings Avenue.

Fort Worth police took the man into custody after 6 p.m.

Knight said police were called to the home at about 8:45 a.m. about a possible assault.

Negotiations broke down Wednesday afternoon, and tear gas was deployed, police said.

The home is near the intersection of South Jennings and West Morningside Drive, near Hemphill Street. Police said it is the home of the man's family.

Three apartments and surrounding homes were evacuated.
