Three suspects are arrested following a 10 hour standoff in Colorado City, just west of Sweetwater, Texas.

A SWAT team converged on a home near some railroad tracks and arrested the men believed to be suspects in a chase and a shooting.

Authorities say the trio reportedly shot at a DPS trooper yesterday morning. After searching for several hours, law enforcement officials say they found an abandoned SUV near Roscoe, Texas and then found the men in the vacant house.

Several schools in the area had to be put on lockdown during the search for the men. All three are in the Mitchell County Jail tonight and are facing several felony charges.
