TEMPLE, Texas – Eight people have been detained, and two more are in police custody, after an armed standoff in Temple on Monday morning.

The Temple Police Department was dispatched to the 5000 block of Charter Oak Drive around 7:30 a.m. after attempting to serve an evidentiary search warrant. When those inside the residence did not come out of the home, drivers and pedestrians were urged to avoid the area.

“They were able to detain eight subjects, two are in custody they range from male and female mid 30’s to early 50’s right now everything is still under investigation,” said Alejandra Arreguin, Public Safety PR Specialist for the Temple Police Department.

Crime scene investigators – as well as an ambulance, Baylor Scott and White car, and a fire truck all appeared on scene. The scene cleared out around 10:30 a.m.

Eight people were detained, and two more were taken into police custody. All of the people are in their mid-30’s to early 50’s. The two in custody are a man and woman who barricaded themselves in the home since 7:30 a.m.

No shots were fired. A Killeen SWAT Team deployed multiple rounds of chemical munition to get the two barricaded subjects out.

“Everyone is safe, officers are safe, the detained and the two that were taken into custody are safe as well,” said Arreguin.
