IRVING, Texas — Editor's note: The video above aired when the standoff was still active. The suspect has been taken into custody. 

Grand Prairie police released new details about a pursuit that ended with a standoff between the suspect and officers Thursday morning. 

Grand Prairie police said around 2 a.m. officers tried to conduct a traffic stop on 18-year-old Isaac Romero near Interstate 30 and MacArthur Boulevard.

Authorities said Romero failed to stop and that’s when the pursuit ensued. It ended near the 1700 block of West Shady Grove in Irving.

Around 5 a.m., Irving police tweeted that the area between the 1600 and 1900 blocks of West Shady Grove were closed due to Romero running into a residence and barricading himself.

The Grand Prairie Police SWAT team responded to the scene and took Romero into custody around 6:30 a.m. without incident, officials said.

Police said Romero is currently booked into the Grand Prairie Detention Center where he faces multiple charges including evading arrest. 

Officials said Romero also had two warrants out of Dallas County for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and unlawfully carrying a weapon.
