SWAT standoff in South Austin ends peacefully, police say

The Austin Police Department (APD) said a SWAT standoff in South Austin ended peacefully on Friday.

Police said at 12:31 p.m., officers received a call of family violence involving a deadly weapon at the Meadowbrook Apartments near Oltorf and S. Lamar.

When officers arrived around 12:46 p.m., they found a victim injured. The victim told officers the suspect was possibly under the influence.

The victim did not suffer life-threatening injuries.

Police said the suspect barricaded herself inside the apartment that possibly had "multiple weapons inside." Shortly after, the SWAT team and negotiators were called to the scene.

A couple hours later, police said the suspect did surrender. She was believed to be intoxicated and had several knives inside.

Apartments nearby that were evacuated were let back inside.
