Overnight SWAT standoff ends peacefully

A man is in custody after an overnight SWAT standoff with Austin police officers near Barton Creek Square Mall ended peacefully just after midnight Monday morning.

APD spokesman Officer Dennis Farris said the man's family contacted police earlier Sunday, believing the man to be distraught and suicidal. Officers believe the man was armed. The original call came in around 7:30pm Sunday night.

SWAT officers were able to get the man to open the door and he was taken into custody without incident. He was taken into protective custody and will undergo medical evaluation.
