At this time the Amarillo Police Department along with the local SWAT team has been called to the Super 8 motel on I-40 & Nelson after one man has barricaded himself inside of his hotel room and is armed.

The APD along with the SWAT team walked up to the mans hotel room located on the north side of the hotel, the suspect through a shotgun out of the hotel window and then pointed a handgun at an APD officer, the officer then fired back at the suspect. No one knows if the suspect has been shot.

Because the standoff is close to Bowie Middle School, AISD officials say the school has not been put on lockdown but say the only area where students can be picked up is on the north side of the school.
