LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - A suspect is in custody and police are clearing the scene after SWAT was called to a residence near 84th Street and Avenue V on Tuesday evening.

Residents were evacuated from nearby homes as they dealt with a suicidal person barricaded in a home. Police conducted the evacuation and blocked off roads in response to a threat of explosives around the house, but none were found and no injuries were reported.

Negotiators were on scene for nearly two and a half hours on Tuesday evening, after the call came in around 6:30 p.m.

The suspect is now undergoing evaluation at a Lubbock hospital, and police say there could be criminal charges.
