A man accused of killing two men last October in Arlington was reportedly arrested Thursday evening at an apartment in far east Fort Worth after a standoff that lasted more than five hours.

The suspect was identified as 25-year-old Christian Edwards.

Officers had gone to the man’s apartment in the 4800 block of Canyon Trail, near Texas 360 and Airport Freeway, to serve a capital murder warrant about 3 p.m., said Sgt. VaNessa Harrison, Arlington police spokeswoman.

The man barricaded himself inside the home. SWAT officers from Fort Worth and Arlington responded to the scene, Harrison said.

The man is wanted in the killing of Jordyn Clemons, 20, and Johnathon Phillips, 25, who were found dead in an apartment in the 1000 block of Benge Drive on Oct. 27.

No further details about the case were immediately available.
