KILLEEN, Texas —

A standoff between a man and the Killeen Police Department took place Thursday afternoon after the department was called in reference to a disturbance and shots fired on Lazy Ridge Dr. near Whitmire Dr., according to the Killeen PD.

A man was throwing objects at moving cars in the front yard of a home. 

When officers arrived at around 3:23 p.m. the man was in the house, but came back outside and pointed, what was believed to be a gun, at the officers. He then went back into the home, according to the Killeen PD.

Officers on the scene called for backup. Killeen PD and the SWAT team formed a perimeter around the house. The Tactical Response Unit was then notified and responded to the scene.   

The man, later identified as Trenton Xavier Manns, 25, then climbed onto the roof, made comments to the officers, and then went back inside. He yelled that he would not come out and would stay all night long, according to the Killeen PD.

Eventually, Manns left through the back door and into the backyard. He was arrested at around 6:04 p.m.

Manns was taken to Killeen City Jail. During the investigation, officers found the firearm Manns had in the house.  An expended shell casing was also found in the front yard.

Police did say that they have been to this home before in reference to a disturbance. They also wanted the community to know that if any loud noises were heard, flashbangs were used to move two pit bulls away from the back yard.

On Friday, the Bell County District Attorney’s Office reviewed this case and issued two complaints charging Manns with two counts of aggravated assault against a public servant.  

Manns was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke, who set his bond at $100,000 for each charge.
