Early morning SWAT standoff in North Austin

An early morning SWAT standoff in North Austin forced some people out of their homes. It happened around 12:30 a.m. at an apartment complex in the 7200 block of Twin Crest Drive.

Police say they got a call about two women fighting outside and that a man got involved and pistol whipped one of the women.

The woman was taken to St. David's with non life threatening injuries.

The man then went into one of the apartments and as a precaution people living in nearby apartments were evacuated. A bus was called in to get them to safety.

Police say the man came out on his own at around 3 a.m.
