Law enforcement officers cancelled the call for a paramedic at the scene of the standoff in eastern Schleicher County moments ago.

No one else is said to have been injured. 


Law enforcement officers are have set up a perimeter around a home on a ranch in eastern Schleicher County where a gunman has reportedly barricaded himself inside.

Deputies from Schleicher and Menard counties, were joined by Texas Department of Public Safety troopers and Texas Game Wardens Wednesday evening, May 13th, as they kept watch over the mobile home where a gunman allegedly threatened his parents with a weapon before barricading himself inside the home.

Schleicher County Chief Deputy Jason Chatham responded to a 911 call at a remote ranch when a caller said that he and his wife were hiding in a pasture after their son had threatened them.

Chatham called for backup, as well as assistance from Menard County. Several units from both Sheriff’s offices responded to the call, along with a DPS trooper and a Game Warden.

The suspect is said to be a 47-year-old male. He is believed to be in possession of several weapons.

Officers located the man’s parents and took them to safety, before setting up a perimeter around the home.

Ambulances from Schleicher and Menard counties staged near the home, in case they were needed.

By Thursday morning, an armored tactical vehicle had been called in along with at least one Texas Ranger and the DPS SWAT team from Austin.

At 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 14th, there had been no injuries reported, although there had been a report that the subject had fired his weapon at what was believed to be an abandoned vehicle.
