Early Friday evening, Amarillo police officers were dispatched to the 3600 block of S. Western on a possible aggravated assault involving domestic violence.

When officers arrived, members of the family were outside and stated that the parties involved were inside. Officers tried to make contact and didn’t get an answer.

Further investigation revealed one of the subjects might be armed with weapons which prompted having SWAT officers respond. While police were trying to make contact with subjects inside the home, the investigation revealed they might be in a vehicle in the area.

Negotiators made contact by phone and the subjects agreed to come meet with them. When they arrived, they were all detained for further investigation.

This incident is still under investigation by the Amarillo police detective division.
