CCPD responds to apparent standoff in Flour Bluff

Thursday evening a standoff situation is to blame for a heavy police presence in Flour Bluff near Waldron Road. They say it involves an individual shooting multiple rounds at police. The police ran out of ammunition until back up arrived. The woman is armed with a shotgun and police believe she may have been shot during the shooting battle. The original call came in as a burglary.

The Corpus Christi Police Department officers are using every “less lethal” tool to de-escalate the situation including SWAT team, ballistic shields, and drones. As of 10 p.m. Thursday the threat to the public is still active, and CCPD is adding units to their presence and will keep an officer in the neighborhood to keep the perimeter secure from outsiders. The suspect is a woman who has barricaded herself in the home.
