FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) - Fort Worth police have arrested a man following a SWAT situation early Friday morning. 

Fort Worth Police say the unidentified man was holed up inside his trailer earlier this morning, firing off gunshots about every 20 minutes.

This was at a mobile home park on Leisure Drive in northeast Fort Worth.

Other nearby trailers were evacuated briefly for safety.

Officer Buddy Calzada says in the end they called SWAT in to help, and those officers used gas to force the man out of his trailer. 

The man was taken into custody and his trailer was searched.

Thankfully he'd kept no hostages, but Calzada says officers did find more guns in the trailer as well as bomb making materials.
