HALTOM CITY -- Police and SWAT team members surrounded a home in Haltom City for hours Tuesday where they believed a man had barricaded himself inside.

Police eventually found the home was empty just before 6 p.m.

Police responded to a shots fired call Tuesday morning before the standoff began in the 4100 block of Field Street. It is unclear who fired the shots.

Nearby Stowe Elementary School was placed on lockdown as a precaution. The day's schedule went on as planned, but outdoor activities were brought inside.
