SWAT Ends Standoff With Driver Wanted on Felony Warrant: Police

Dallas SWAT ended a standoff with a driver stopped on a felony warrant in Dallas Wednesday.

Officers stopped the driver of a Ford Mustang in a warehouse parking lot near Duncanville Road and Kiest Boulevard, police said, because he was a felony suspect.

At some point the driver, who police have not named, was said to have pointed a weapon at officers and refused to exit the vehicle.

For more than an hour, officers surrounded the vehicle with guns drawn, while the man held his arms out of the vehicle. At times, he would wave or make motions as he negotiated with police.

Just after 1 p.m., as SWAT officers and an armored vehicle closed in, the man exited the vehicle, lifted up his shirt to show he was not armed and then surrendered.

Police said Wednesday afternoon the man never pointed a weapon at police, though they declined to say if weapons were found in the car.

Traffic to northbound Duncanville road was diverted while the standoff was underway; the road has since been reopened to traffic.

No injuries were reported and there were no reports of any shots fired.
