Officers Sustain Minor Injuries in Holmes Drive Standoff

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Police arrested one man on Wednesday, after what one officer described as a dangerous standoff in a residential neighborhood.

It all happened just before 4 p.m. in the 4900 block of Holmes Drive near McArdle and South Staples.

Police were called to the scene to investigate an assault. They said they had a calm conversation with the 37-year old man, but then for some reason, he ran inside and grabbed a gun.

The SWAT Team was called in, but officers said they used a Taser weapon to bring the confrontation to a halt before SWAT officers arrived.

"Two officers were injured in this event. They have minor injuries. They have cuts to their arms from the glass, cuts to the knees from wrestling with the man on the ground, and one of the officers has a knee swelling up," said Senior Officer Kirk Stowers of the Corpus Christi Police Department. "The two officers were seen by an ambulance crew here."

Authorities said that the unidentified man is hearing impaired, and has reportedly been charged with making terroristic threats.
