Just before 5 p.m. on Tuesday, October 13th, a wanted gang member was located, leading to a standoff at a residence in Lubbock.

Forty-three-year-old Gilbert Cisneros (pictured above) was featured on the Lubbock Texas Anti-Gang Center's (TAG) Top 10 Most Wanted List for an active felony warrant issued by the State of Texas Pardon and Parole Board for Aggravated Robbery.

TAG investigators located Cisneros at a residence in the 2800 block of 39th Street at 4:57 p.m.

When Cisneros was approached, he barricaded himself inside the residence, refusing to surrender. It's said that investigators from the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office and the Lubbock Police Department surrounded the residence and requested help from the Lubbock Police Department Patrol Division and SWAT Team.

TAG says at 5:05 p.m., three women left the residence. They were identified as 42-year-old Carmel Cisneros, 31-year-old Telissa Pierce and 34-year-old Vanessa Upchurch-Martinez. Cisneros and Upchurch-Martinez were arrested for active misdemeanor warrants.

Nearly three hours after the standoff began at 8 p.m., a man identified as 36-year-old Guadalupe Castillo exited the house. He was arrested for an active State of Texas Pardon and Parole warrant for Fraud.

Then, around 20 minutes later, Cisneros finally surrendered to Police. He was arrested for his aggravated robbery warrant.
