Police Capture Suspect in Armed Standoff in Stone Oak

San Antonio police took an armed suspect into custody in Stone Oak early in the morning Wednesday, May 14.  The 40-year-old Hispanic man had locked himself into a home in the 800 block of Mandolin Wind after police were called for family violence.  They were told the man in the home had been drinking.  When police arrived and began interviewing family members outside of the home, the man came outside and shots were heard.  It is unclear the direction in which he shot. 
 

SAPD hostage negotiators were called, and eventually the man was apprehended and taken into custody around 2 a.m.  Police believe the man did have more than one weapon.  This is not the first time they have been called to this home in recent months.  The other family members are safe.  Police are requesting neighbors avoid the area if possible.
