Police took a man into custody after a three-hour standoff Thursday night in Northwest Austin.
The SWAT standoff took place in the 12300 block of Hunters Chase Drive. No one was injured, and he did not brandish a weapon at anyone at any point, Austin police said.
A woman called 911 at 8:20 p.m. She said she needed help resolving an argument with her ex-boyfriend. He had been violent in the past, had threatened her and owned guns inside the home they were in, police said.
When officers arrived, they asked the man to step outside so they could talk to him, but he refused, Austin police officials said. Officers ultimately decided to call out the Austin police SWAT team because there were multiple guns inside the home.
The man came outside around 11:30 p.m., and police shot him with a gun containing bean bag shells, police said. He told police he was not injured by this, police said.
Police are currently interviewing the man, and he will be evaluated by an officer trained to deal with people experiencing mental health crises, police said.
