A SWAT standoff in southeast Houston ended with a suspect in custody overnight.

It happened on Lyndhurst near Southbank. Police say the son was threatening to blow up his mother's house.

She called 911 and told officers her son had a knife. But when SWAT arrived the son told police he had a pistol and wanted to kill himself.

He remained holed up inside the home for about 30 minutes before he came outside and surrendered.
