Standoff Forces Hour-Long Closure of Lubbock Neighborhood

The man accused of shutting down a Lubbock neighborhood for an entire hour is facing charges. It started around 3:15 p.m. Monday when authorities tried to serve a warrant to Alfred Luis Casanova.  He slammed the door, starting an hour-long swat-standoff at 48th and Avenue V.

Authorities believed there could be anywhere from one to four children inside the house and they were concerned because Casanova apparently had a knife.

The 29-year-old was getting a warrant for violation of probation. He is currently on probation for aggravated robbery out of Tarrant County. 

Almost an hour after standoff began, a little boy between ages of three to five was released. Minutes later, police escorted Casanova from the home in handcuffs. Authorities say he will face a number of charges.
