A man is facing charges after a fight over a Lone Star card last night led to a SWAT team being called in.

It happened at the Crescent City apartments on Broadway and Rockhill.

Police say the man pulled out a gun and started firing to get two women to stop fighting over a Lone Star card. According to authorities, he hit one of the women, but she managed to get away.

Officers say the shooter and a woman ran into his apartment and refused to come out, so they called a SWAT team. After a few hours both people gave up and were taken into custody.
