HILLSBORO (September 26, 2013)--Aaron Kyle Glowski, 34, who was arrested after an eight-hour standoff at a rural house on the Hill-Bosque County line during which shots were fired at officers, has been charged with 14 counts of aggravated assault on a peace officer and one count of felon in possession of a firearm.
The house on Private Road 221 off FM 2114 near Aquilla later burned down and authorities are investigating the possibility an incendiary device of some kind was left hidden in the home after the standoff ended.
The standoff started after deputies were sent to the home at around 11 a.m. Tuesday in response to a report of a burglary in progress, Hill County Sheriff Michael Cox said.
When deputies arrived, the man fired shots at them and barricaded himself inside.
Deputies called for backup and evacuated nearby residents from the area.
The McLennan County Bomb Squad and the Bosque County Special Response Team responded to the call as well Department of Public Safety troopers and Texas Rangers.
Four or five shots were fired at officers during the standoff, which came to an end after tear gas was fired into the house repeatedly.
At around 11 p.m. Tuesday a deputy who was near the house heard an explosion and then the house burst into flames.
The home burned to the ground.
Glowski remains in the Hill County Jail.
The home belongs to the family of his ex-girlfriend, authorities said.
