‘It's Your Mother, Come Out': Mom Helps Dallas Police Coax Barricaded Man Out of Pleasant Grove Home

A mother showed up to aid Dallas police in a barricaded persons call involving her son Tuesday afternoon in Pleasant Grove. Apparently the mom's calls helped.

It started at about 4:35 p.m. when Dallas police chased the man in a stolen vehicle, police said. He bailed out of the car and went inside a home in the 9600 block of Paramount Avenue, police said.

The man's mom came to aid police in coaxing him out of the house. She took off her high heels and police gave her the mic.

"Hey, it's your mother, come out. Come on. Come on out! Hello! Hey!" she said in the mic.

The man, identified by police Wednesday as 18-year-old Shane D. Burkett, eventually took his mother's advice and surrendered. He was arrested and charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and evading arrest.

Burkett is being hield in the Dallas County Jail on $15,000 bond.
