HOUSTON - A SWAT standoff in southwest Houston has ended after a man barricaded himself inside an apartment with his two young children.

It happened last night at an apartment complex off Harbor Town Drive after police say the man and his common law wife got into some sort of altercation.

Things escalated and the woman ended up leaving the apartment, but didn’t take the two young children with her.

After hours of trying to negotiate with the man, a SWAT team forced their way inside.

The children were not hurt, but the man was taken into custody.
