Standoff North of Owasso Ends Peacefully

Authorities with the TCSO said they were conducting a welfare check on the suspect, but he wouldn't come out of his garage. Authorities said the man threatened that he had a gun and as a result the SWAT team was called in.

The suspect was transported for a mental evaluation.

Several residents nearby informed KTUL that there were at least 10 deputy vehicles on scene.
