Local News

WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — After a standoff that lasted about three hours Thursday morning, a Wichita Falls man is behind bars.

Police officers said he first fired a gun at someone trying to enter an apartment. They said they were called to the apartment complex in the 900 block of Denver just after 6 a.m. for a shots fired call.

When they arrived, officers spoke with someone who said he was trying to get inside an apartment but the door was locked.

After banging on the door for someone to let him in, police officers said the suspect came outside with a gun and said, “stop banging on the — door.”

At that time, the victim said, “if you have a gun on somebody, you better use it.”

That’s when police say Drew Wesley, 23, fired two shots.

Shortly after, officers said Wesley barricaded himself inside his apartment.

Wesley eventually came out without incident just before 9 a.m. He is charged with aggravated assault.
