WASHINGTON, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A suspect surrendered to Washington, Mo. police after they deployed tear gas during a standoff.

The standoff occurred on Walnut Street. A man saying he was wanted on outstanding warrants called police indicating he wanted to turn himself in.

Officers then arrived, but were confronted by a man who lives in an adjoining duplex that was also wanted on warrants. Police say he was armed with a large knife. He then ran back into his duplex and refused to come out.

A SWAT team with a Department of Homeland Security truck was called in. The truck has the Department of Homeland Security logo because that department gave the Washington Police Department that vehicle through a grant.

The SWAT team then cut the power and used tear gas. The suspect then surrendered, police said.

The suspect was taken to a hospital to be treated for injuries for flying glass that caused by a tear gas canister that went through a window.
