HOUSTON TEXAS - Houston police say the male suspect was barricaded inside the motel room with plenty of ammunition. He reportedly had two guns, a semi-automatic rifle and a pistol. Police also say he had several rounds of ammo. At one point, officers were able to reach the female hostage by phone and were able to coax her out of the room. She was able to escape safely into the hands of SWAT officers. HPD says the suspect fired dozens of rounds at police over a two-hour period. Officers, however, did not shoot back as they took protective positions behind the armored SWAT vehicles.
