San Antonio-area home standoff ends after more than 24 hours

SAN ANTONIO — A standoff at a San Antonio-area home has ended after more than 24 hours with two sheriff’s deputies and the suspect being treated for injuries.

Bexar (bayr) County sheriff’s officials say the incident began Tuesday evening when deputies trained in interacting with the mentally ill attempted to serve a warrant on a 60-year-old man at the home. Gunfire erupted that forced the deputies to retreat, resulting in the standoff.

Deputies concerned about the welfare of a woman in her 80s who apparently is with the man re-entered the home early Wednesday and again were met by gunfire.

Two deputies were injured, one with a glass fragment injuring his eyelid and the other wounded in the arm. The nature of the suspect’s injuries wasn’t immediately clear.

This story has been corrected to measure the length of the standoff at more than 24 hours instead of 22½ hours.
