FLOWER MOUND, Texas (KXAS/KXAN) — A man was arrested Thursday morning in a shooting that injured three police officers and then turned into an overnight standoff in Flower Mound, a suburb northwest of Dallas.

Flower Mound police said Bryan Hucabee, 60, was charged with three counts of felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Police said additional charges are pending.

KXAS in Dallas reports the 11-hour standoff ended around 5:30 a.m. Thursday at a home not far from Flower Mound High School.

Officers originally responded to the home for a possible suicide call at 7:04 p.m. Once they arrived, they attempted to contact Hucabee who lived by himself at the home. About an hour later, police say Hucabee fired shots at officers and injured three of them.

Two of the officers were taken to a hospital for treatment and are OK. The third officer didn’t need to go to the hospital and was treated by medics at the scene.

Police say officers returned fire.

According to KXAS, one of the officers was hit in their bulletproof vest and another was carrying a metal shield that was hit. A SWAT team took over after the officers were shot.

Police also evacuated homes in the neighborhood.
