A man waving a knife in a South Austin shopping center led to a swat stand-off Thursday morning.
Austin police were called out to the Wal-Mart parking lot on Ben White near I-35 just before 8 a.m. When officers arrived they found the male suspect standing on top of a shipping container next to the store. Since the man had a knife, the SWAT team was called in.
It took hours to negotiate with the man but eventually he was taken into custody. The man was taken to a hospital for evaluation.
Charges are pending at this time.
