A man surrendered Saturday night, hours after barricading himself in an Arlington apartment, police said.

The incident began about 7 p.m. after the man, who was not immediately identified, was confronted by officers who responded to a domestic disturbance call, an Arlington police spokesman said.

The fight was between a woman’s boyfriend and her ex-boyfriend, according to Arlington police, but authorities did not release any other details on the dispute.

Jail records identified the suspect as William Trevon Caraway, who remained in the Arlington Jail on Sunday. He was booked into jail early Sunday, facing charges of aggravated assault against a public servant. Unrelated to the standoff, Caraway also is being held on charges of theft out of the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Department and having no insurance and leaving the scene of a traffic accident in Irving.

Gunshots were heard during Saturday’s standoff, but no injuries had been reported, said police Sgt. Jeff Houston.

At 10:20 p.m. the man was still alone in the unit at Running Brook Apartments in the 3000 block of Little Brook Lane, Houston said.

Arlington police said on Twitter shortly before midnight that the man had surrendered.

“Negotiators have been talking with the man for about an hour,” Houston said earlier. “It’s up to him what happens. We’re going to keep talking with him and trying to get him to come out willingly. We’ll stay out here as long as it takes to come to a peaceful solution.”

The man was seen holding a shotgun before he retreated into the apartment, Houston said.

“I don’t know who shot what,” Houston said. “There were shots fired, but that will come later in the investigation who shot what how many times.”
