HOUSTON - - A SWAT standoff at a Houston home has ended with a gunman shot and wounded and a second man found dead inside the house.

Police say the dead man, killed in an apparent stabbing, is the gunman's father.

The standoff Saturday lasted about five hours, ending with the gunman shooting toward officers outside. They returned fire.

Police initially went to the house after a phone call from a relative saying they were being threatened by someone with a knife.

Names of the people involved haven't been immediately released. The wounded man was taken to a hospital. His condition hasn't been disclosed.
