A Killeen man was taken into custody at 4:56 this morning after holding police at bay for more than 15 hours.

The man, who police did not identify pending official charges from the Bell County Attorney's office, was reportedly threatening himself in a residence in the 3600 block of Tatonka Drive, according to police.

Officers received information in reference to an assault that occurred during a domestic dispute and as they were speaking with the female victim, information was received that the male was threatening to harm himself. Officers were dispatched to the residence at approximately 1:30 p.m. Sunday to check his welfare, according to information released by police.

The man refused to come out of the house and baricaded himself inside. The Tactical Response Unit was deployed and officers began evacuating nearby residents. Just before 10 p.m. the residents who were evacuated from their homes were directed to the Killeen Community Center.

Officers continued a dialogue with the man until he was taken into custody without incident at 4:56 this morning. He was transported to the Killeen City Jail and charged with assault.
