Seven-hour Standoff North of Benjamin Franklin Middle School Ends in Arrest
Dallas police officers on Saturday arrested an armed man “without incident” following a seven-hour standoff at a home north of Benjamin Franklin Middle School, according to the department’s Twitter feed.
Officers used a taser to subdue the suspect, according to video on the department’s Facebook page.
