EL PASO-- El Paso police arrested a man after a SWAT standoff ended peacefully early Sunday morning.
21-year-old Gabriel Chandler was arrested by members of the EPPD's SWAT Team as Chandler exited his apartment at 11025 Vista Del Sol at the Lake Fairway Apartments.
Police had originally responded to a report of a family fight a little after 3:00 A.M. Officers learned that a man, later identified as Chandler, was locked inside an apartment with a female and was armed with a handgun.
The female walked out of the apartment before the SWAT Team deployed chemical agents inside of the apartment.
Moments later, Chandler walked out.
Chandler was then arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and family violence.
He was booked into the El Paso County Detention Facility.
