Suspect surrenders after SWAT call on Airport Blvd off I-35

A SWAT situation in East Austin came to an end just before midnight on Thursday, Dec. 8 with the suspect surrendering to police.

Austin police say the SWAT situation started just before 7 p.m. when authorities tried to stop a vehicle with a suspect who had multiple violent felony warrants.

That vehicle rammed through a police check, evaded officers, and the suspect ran away with another person into an apartment complex in the 4400 block of Airport Boulevard just off I-35.

One person came out of the apartment, but the other barricaded themselves inside for several hours.

They eventually surrendered peacefully.
