Just hours after police were called to the Omni Hotel in downtown Dallas, a person was taken into custody Saturday afternoon.

Dallas Police were called around 1:00 p.m. to 555 S. Lamar after learning of a barricaded man who was staying at the hotel. Friends called police because they thought he may hurt himself.

After police learned he may have a handgun, they called the SWAT team in.

The SWAT team interacted with the man briefly before he turned himself in. He was taken into custody for evaluation.

The Omni Hotel remained open, with guests freely traveling in and out. Guests even remained at the pool. Police say they were safe the entire time.
