An armed man was arrested Wednesday afternoon after he barricaded himself inside a vehicle in west Houston.

The man was armed with a gun in the hotel parking lot at 2900 Briarpark Drive, police said. The standoff lasted about 90 minutes.

According to police, they received a call about a suspicious person trying to break into cars at the Marriott hotel parking lot.

Witnesses tell Eyewitness News that there was a loud 'boom' sound.

"I saw a lot of movement from the SWAT," Ashley said. "I heard them say over the loudspeaker to 'stay down and walk backwards and get on his knees.'"

The suspect is charged with aggravated assault.

No other details have been released.
