HOUSTON – A man who was shooting at shadows inside his northeast Houston home was finally taken into custody Wednesday night after a three-hour long SWAT standoff, according to Houston police.

Police were sent to the house in the 400 block of Cheatham near Thomas Road, on the east side of Lake Houston, around 7 p.m. to investigate a shots-fired call.

The man would not come out of the home for several hours, but eventually gave up. Neighbors said he suffers from mental illness.

He was taken to the hospital for observation. No charges have been filed.
