Man in custody after brief standoff in Channelview

CHANNELVIEW, Texas – Harris County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a Channelview neighborhood where a man allegedly refused to surrender.

Deputies responded to Garlang at Sheldon, just south of the East Freeway, around 1 a.m. Friday.

A neighbor told deputies that he had been in an argument with the male suspect, who then allegedly threatened him. Deputies were unable to talk the suspect into coming out of his home, however.

Deputies called in the SWAT team, but the suspect surrendered before they arrived. The man was taken into custody.

It wasn’t immediately clear what charges he would face, if any. The case has been referred to the district attorney.
