Law enforcement officers from several east Texas agencies
are engaged in a SWAT situation in Hooks, after a man being served with a
mental commitment order barricaded himself in his house, according to Hooks
Police Chief Keith Schutte.
Law enforcement from Bowie County, along with Texas state

Schutte said. As far as police know, the man is unarmed and alone in the house.
He is communicating with police by telephone.
