SWAT Standoff Ends, Man Arrested at Terrell Home

Officials say a standoff between an armed man and a SWAT team has ended at a Terrell home following a chase Wednesday morning.

The chase started at about 11 a.m. on State Highway 205 after a Terrell narcotics officer attempted to stop and arrested the driver, identified as 24-year-old Dylan Canady. Police said Canady was wanted on a parole violation.

Authorities said the chase ended when Canady exited his vehicle and fled into a house in the 16000 block of State Highway 205 at about 11:30 a.m.

Police say two adults and two small children were inside the home when Canady entered. The adults ran outside, but the two children remained in the house.

Several officers entered the residence quickly and removed the children, ages 5 and 1.

Officers attempted to contact Canady, but he refused to surrender, police said.

Terrell police SWAT officers were then called in to assist.

After an hour, SWAT and a police K-9 from Kaufman County Sheriff's Department entered the home and found Canady inside the laundry room hiding under some clothes.

He was bitten by the police K-9 and a stun gun was used to control him to bring him into custody, police said.

A Beretta semi automatic handgun was recovered at the home and in the possession of Canady, according to officers.

Canady has been charged with the active warrant, evading arrest in a vehicle, possession of a firearm by a felon and resisting arrest.

Other charges may follow and other subjects were arrested as part of the incident.
