A confrontation between neighbors turned into a SWAT scene after a man threw something dangerous. He surrendered 90 minutes later.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Authorities from the Houston Police Department's SWAT and Negotiation team responded to a scene where they said a man barricaded himself inside his apartment after throwing a piece of heavy metal at his elderly neighbor.

According to the HPD, officers were called to the 700 block of North Super Street on Friday.

Lt. Larry Crowson said the man reportedly threw a "heavy metal pipe" toward the older woman during a confrontation.

It is unclear how the confrontation came about, however, police said the suspect also went to another neighbor's residence after the first incident and punched out a window.
