A SWAT standoff at a home in southeast Houston finally came to an end, but only after authorities learned the suspect was long gone.

Officers surrounded the home on Kingsway in southeast Houston late last night. They were looking to arrest a man wanted for felony burglary. After trying to get the man to come out, SWAT officers went into the home and discovered it was empty.

It's unclear if the suspect slipped out during the standoff or if he was never there to begin with.
