The original release of the story reads as follows:

At approximately 10:15 AM, APD officers responded to several burglaries in the area of the 3500 block of Danbury St. A suspect in one or more of the burglaries ran to a home in the 3500 block of Carlton and made entry. Officers have seen the suspect and he appeared to have been armed with what appeared to be a handgun. Amarillo SWAT and negotiators are on scene attempting to make contact with the suspect at this time.

 

We’re listening to the police scanner and they are saying it is a white male, approximately 5ft 10in and approximately 125 pounds.  He was driving a GMC vehicle before he abandoned it and made entry to the home.  This information is currently being gathered by us on a police scanner.
