DALLAS (KRLD) - Dallas police have arrested a man after an hours-long standoff with police near the Katy Trail in Dallas.

Police said they responded to an apartment complex in Oak Lawn after neighbors overheard gunshots. 

A SWAT team was called to the home on Buena Vista Road, near the Katy Trail and Fitzhugh Avenue. They were ultimately successful in getting the man to surrender without incident.  

Authorities say the suspect will be charged with one count of deadly conduct and two counts of aggravated assault after he fired his weapon at the adjacent apartment building. Police say two women who were walking by the area at the time of the shooting were not injured. 

Police are unsure of the man's motive.
