Divorcing Man Barricades Himself In Lawyer's Office (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Talk about client relations gone awry.

Texas news outlets are reporting that, on Friday, a San Antonio man walked into the office of his divorce lawyer and threatened to shoot his estranged wife, with whom he was in the process of finalizing divorce proceedings, before turning the gun towards himself.

Attorney Armando Martinez responded by pulling out his own weapon and pointing it at the 49-year-old man, instructing him not to shoot, and ordering everyone to leave the office.

A SWAT team stationed outside negotiated with the man, and eventually convinced him to surrender after two-and-a-half hours (though one shot was fired during the standoff, nobody was harmed).

The man is currently undergoing psychiatric evaluation.
