SAN ANTONIOUPDATE: A standoff on the city’s West Side involving San Antonio police officers, SWAT team members and crisis negotiators has come to an end.

SAPD said they found out that a woman who they thought might be in danger wasn’t inside the apartment any longer.

According to police, the incident first stemmed from a possible domestic violence situation around 6:45 p.m. Wednesday at an apartment complex in the 1700 block of Thompson Place.

Investigators say a caller witnessed a man and a woman in a verbal confrontation as she drove into the apartment complex, where they then went into one of the apartment units.

Police said officers were called to deescalate the situation, which they believe was a domestic dispute. Around 15 to 20 residents were evacuated from around the apartment unit as a precaution while they worked to resolve the situation, SAPD said.

No one was hurt in the incident and police say no arrests were made. SAPD said they will, however, return to the scene later Thursday to check on the situation.
