After more than four hours of negotiating, police walked out with the man who barricaded himself inside his third-floor apartment at the Venue on Guadalupe and Fruth streets, according to KVUE. Austin Police responded to a SWAT call at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday from the man's roommate, who was worried because the man had not left the apartment for more than one day, said APD Sgt. Jamie Jobes. Police confirmed the 26-year-old man has a gun, and they began to talk to the suspect at 3 p.m. The man's name and whether any potential charges will be filed against him have not been released.
