LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A man's standoff with Lufkin Police in a residence on Trenton Street ended after about an hour with the man surrendering and getting into his mother's car.

According to police spokesman Det. JB Smith, police are escorting the man to a mental health facility.

Lufkin Police began the standoff with the man after someone called 911 and reported a man was outside and waving a gun around and had a bulletproof vest.

Police had blocked off Trenton Street, between Atkinson Drive and Briarwood Drive.

Smith said an officer arrived on the scene and the man ran into the house and locked himself inside.

Police called the neighbor back and they said they never said they saw him with a gun, Smith said.

Police began talking to the man from outside and worked it out with him to come out of the house.

Around 12:15 p.m., police allowed his mother to drive up to the residence and talk to the man from outside. The man then began yelling and hitting a window.

Police put the man in the mother's car and the mother left the residence with one police unit in front of her and another behind her.
