TEXARKANA, Texas (KSLA) — An hours-long standoff in Texarkana, Texas, has ended with the alleged gunman’s arrest.
It began when Thomas King Jr. holed up in a unit at Ridgewood Apartments in the 1400 block of Richmond Road about 2 p.m. Thursday, authorities say.
The standoff ended after police fired two rounds of CS gas to get King out of the apartment, spokesman Shawn Vaughn said.
Authorities believe two people helped King hide inside an air-conditioning duct. There’s no immediate word on whether they will face charges.
Police described King as a suspect in an armed robbery but did not say what or whom he’s accused of robbing.
