Arlington police say a standoff that started on Friday night ended early Saturday morning with the arrest of a man wanted for murder. Arlington police say they received a call at around 8:45 p.m Friday that a man had killed a woman in a duplex in the 600 block of Gemini Court. Officers found a woman dead at the duplex and saw the man they believed the man responsible was in an adjacent duplex where investigators believe the homicide took place. The man, Donald Paul Hunting, refused to speak to officers and surrender, according to police. Arlington police said out of an abundance of caution officers evacuated surrounding duplexes when witnesses told officers Hunting might have access to firearms. After several hours of unsuccessful negotiation the Arlington SWAT team responded to the scene. Hunting was taken into custody at around 4 a.m. on Saturday. Arlington police say Hunting is in the Arlington Jail held on one count of murder, his initial bond was set at $150,000.
