LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A suspect is now in custody following a SWAT standoff in south Lubbock. 

Police responded to the call around 11:30 Wednesday night in the 2000 block of 78th Street after a woman reported a man with a gun was threatening her and her family. Lubbock Police identified the suspect as Jason McCary. Witnesses say he displayed a gun before going inside and barricading himself in a home.

The SWAT team was called to the scene around 12:30 am after McCary would not come out of the residence.

Negotiators worked through the morning for a peaceful resolution. Around 6:15 Thursday morning, they used a K9 unit to take McCary into custody.  

McCary was taken to UMC to be treated for a dog bite. After he is released from the hospital he will be taken into the Lubbock County Jail. 

He faces charges of aggravated assault and felon in possession of a firearm.
