Williamson County

ROUND ROCK, Texas (KXAN) — Law enforcement officials are working to clear the scene of a SWAT incident in the Citywide Condominiums community in Round Rock after reports of shots fired earlier Wednesday.

Round Rock police and SWAT responded to a residence in the 1600 block of Bryant Drive Wednesday afternoon.

Officers said there was an armed woman not cooperating with law enforcement at the residence. Round Rock officials said the woman was suffering a mental health crisis and was taken into custody unharmed.

It is unknown how many shots were fired, but no one else was inside of the residence at the time.

Round Rock police say tactics, training and technology all played a part in resolving the situation.

“The result of this is exactly the way we want it to turn out, and that’s the hallmark of training and an exceptional agency,” said Lt. Tom Sloan with the Round Rock Police Department Criminal Investigations Division.

Officials say they are now focusing on getting the woman the mental health assistance she needs.

According to Round Rock Police Department, AW Grimes Boulevard has reopened as of 6:30 p.m.

There are no reported injuries, RRPD says.

KXAN will update this story with more information as it becomes available.
