A standoff between police and a man who claimed to have killed someone lasted more than six hours on Saturday before ending peacefully. Police learned the suspect, 41-year-old Mauricio Alaniz of Baytown, had not shot anyone.

Baytown police spokesman Lt. Steve Dorris said the Alaniz called 911 at 7:42 a.m. and reported he had just executed a woman inside the home in the 1000 block of Patsy Drive. He said he was armed with a handgun and rifle and wanted to engage in a gunfight with police.
