Suspect keeps Lubbock SWAT at bay for 3 hours

Some tense moments, early Saturday morning, when the SWAT team was called out to a Lubbock apartment complex during a standoff.

It started just before 2:30AM at the Hunter's Way Apartment Complex, at 56th Street and Loop 289.  Police say they received a call about a possible burglary in progress.  The person calling 9-11 said someone was banging on their door and trying to get in. 

When officers arrived on the scene, they found the suspect, who ran into his apartment.  Police say the suspect ran back out, carrying a shotgun.  The suspect then began threatening police.  Officers say the suspect then went back inside the apartment and barricaded himself.

The SWAT team were called out, and after a 3 hour standoff, they were able to get the suspect to come out.  The man was arrested, but police are not releasing his name
