KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) – Killeen police were involved in a second standoff in less than 24 hours Tuesday and for a second time the incident ended peacefully.

An armed man who was holed up in a house in the 1400 block of Mulford Street near the intersection of North 10th Street and East Dean Avenue in the downtown area was arrested early Tuesday afternoon after a standoff that started at around 11:30 a.m.

Police described the incident as a domestic call with a weapon.

Streets in the area were closed to traffic during the standoff.

A SWAT standoff Monday evening shut down a stretch of Veterans Memorial Boulevard in Killeen.

The standoff started after officers responded to a report of a disturbance involving an armed man at around 4:45 p.m. Monday in the 500 block of 58th Street.

As officers arrived, the man fired a shot in the air and then retreated into a house, police said.

The man was arrested around 7p.m. after speaking with negotiators and coming out of his house.
