Police say 28-year-old Wesley Flores pulled out a gun and shot himself in the jaw after four hours of unsuccessful negotiations. He's since been sent to a hospital in Lubbock.

Authorities say Flores was originally taken into custody on a warrant for failing to show up to a scheduled court appearance.
