San Angelo police now say the incident on West 20th street is over — and police will be in the area for the next several hours investigating.
Earlier this evening — they issued an alert this evening until further notice for people to avoid 18th, 19th, 20th, 21st and 22nd streets between North Chadbourne and MLK because of police activity. They’ve set up a mobile command unit in the area. Police are focusing their attention on a home on West 20th street — just off North Chadbourne — for a reported standoff. As of 8:25 tonight — someone was seen throwing things out of a window of the house. Update at 8:36 — flames are now seen coming from inside the house. Police say two suspects were taken into custody and had sustained injuries after getting into a fight inside the home tonight.
An 18-year-old woman also inside the home was not injured. Officers say the two men taken into custody after the police standoff were reportedly involved in a robbery at the Smoker’s Outlet — and two north San Angelo convenience stores earlier today.
