LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

According to Longview police, the subject in Thursday's SWAT standoff has been shot and the incident is over. Authorities say the suspect, who is only being identified as a female, has died at a local hospital.

Police reported that there was an armed person inside a home in the 2000 block of Eden Drive. The situation began as a welfare call around 1:18 on Thursday afternoon.

Authorities used gas to get the suspect out of the home. Police say she came out and opened fire, at which time she was shot by police. 

Residents in the neighborhood have been allowed to return to their homes, although neighbors in the immediate area of the standoff may have to wait a bit longer.

According to authorities, the SWAT team and crisis intervention team were deployed to the scene. A perimeter was setup between Page Road and the Loop 281 intersection and Alpine Road and the Eden Drive intersection. Police locked the neighborhood down, refusing to allow anyone in or out of the area.

The suspect was taken to Good Shepherd Medical Center in Longview, where she died.
