    Dallas police have arrested a 19-year-old without incident after a three-hour standoff early Saturday morning.

    Police said David Ramirez locked himself inside van in the area of Elam Road and Sunburst Drive in southeast Dallas. A SWAT team was called in because police believed he had an assault rifle with him.

    Nearby homes were evacuated as precaution.

    Ramirez came out after about three hours with his hands up.

    He faces charges of a prohibited weapon and sleeping in public.
