HOUSTON—A woman says gunmen held her husband hostage at an apartment complex in southwest Houston Monday night.

The woman told police that six people with guns stormed their apartment on South Gessner around 7 p.m. and demanded money.

The woman said the people let her go to get cash, and that’s when she ran to a store across the street and called police.

Police surrounded the apartment, and after a standoff that lasted for more than an hour, the armed suspects surrendered.

The woman’s husband was not hurt.

Police were working to establish a connection between the victim and suspects.
