A robbery suspect was arrested overnight after barricading himself inside a shed in west Houston.

According to the Houston Police Department, they received several reports around 7:15 p.m. about an armed man robbing people in two different apartment complexes near Whittington Drive and Westmead Drive.

Upon arrival, they were able to find the suspect hiding in a utility shed at an apartment complex.

After refusing to come out, police called in SWAT to negotiate which lasted a few hours.

SWAT eventually released tear gas into the shed, and the suspect was taken into custody without incident.

Police said the weapon that was recovered ended up being a airsoft pistol.
