Davalos then entered one of the administration offices of the main building and barricaded himself. Police said it appeared he fired a handgun at officers through one of the office windows. Officers returned fire.

The Colony's Special Response Team arrived on scene along with negotiators as Davalos refused to come out of the building until the police tossed in tear gas around 1:15 a.m. Thursday.

Davalos, of Carrollton, was booked into The Colony Jail charged with Burglary of a Building.

Other charges are pending.
