The Killeen SWAT team captured a 32-year-old shooting suspect after a five-hour standoff Saturday.

Witnesses told Killeen police that Isaac Hernandez, 32, fired five shots from a handgun into the ceiling during an argument.

Hernandez fired another shot below the ceiling, according to an arrest affidavit. The incident happened at about 6 a.m. at a home in the 1700 block of Lee Ann Drive.

Killeen police obtained a search warrant for Hernandez's home, also on Lee Ann Drive. The SWAT team responded since Hernandez was known to be armed and suspected to be intoxicated, said Carroll Smith, Killeen police spokeswoman.

SWAT officers convinced family members to leave the home, but Hernandez refused. After a nearly five-hour standoff, SWAT officers entered the home and arrested Hernandez without resistance.

On Monday, Justice of the Peace Garland Potvin arraigned Hernandez on a charge of deadly conduct discharge of a firearm. Potvin set bond at $50,000.
