A five-hour stand-off in Montrose ended just after 6 a.m. this morning when a man surrendered to Houston police officers.

SWAT members were called around 1 a.m. to a three-story building at the corner of Montrose Avenue and Kipling, where authorities say a man suspected in the Sunday night shooting of woman was hiding.

Police closed off the area and diverted traffic as they tried to communicate with the suspect and as they searched both the first and second floors of the building, where Hot Tops Hair Salon is located.
