Traffic at a stand still and heavily armed LEOs every where.

I wasn't worried until I saw the DFW bomb squad truck

SHERMAN, Tex. -- A seven-hour standoff between Sherman Police and a man armed with a pipe bomb came to end around 5:30 this morning.

According to Sherman Police, they received a call around 10:30 Tuesday night of a suspicious vehicle driving erratically on U.S. 75 late Tuesday and tried to pull him over. Instead, the man sped away.

Sgt. Bruce Dawsey says a brief chase ended when the car spun out on a gravel parking lot.

Upon approach of the vehicle, the driver, 33-year-old Richard Hunn of Sherman, was found slumped over in the front seat of the car. Hunn then took off, and a pursuit ensued.

After a successful perimeter was set up by Sherman Police, Hunn displayed what appeared to be a pipe bomb to authorities near East & Pecan Streets in Sherman. The standoff came to an end there around 5:30 Wednesday morning.

Sgt. Bruce Dawsey of the Sherman Police Department says officers used tear gas seven hours later to flush the man into the open, then fired beanbag rounds at the man to force him to drop the pipe.

Hunn was taken to a local hospital for precautionary reasons where will be booked into the Grayson County Jail upon his release.

The D/FW Airport Bomb Squad was called to the scene where they were successfully able to detonate the explosive safely after the standoff ended. No one was injured in the contained blast.

This is not the first time Hunn has been arrested. In October 1999, Hunn was arrested for possession of an explosive device and attempted capital murder after he was discovered attempting to detonate an explosive device behind the Sherman Police Department.

We’ll have much more on this throughout the day on KXII-TV and KXII.com.
