The suspect accused of shooting three Houston police officers Thursday was taken into custody after a standoff at a home in the Fifth Ward, Houston Police said.

HPD Chief Troy Finner said the suspect surrendered after getting into a standoff with officers for a few hours.

The officers -- who are all expected to recover -- are Officer N. Gadson, 35, who has been with HPD for four years, Officer D. Hayden, 32, who's been with the force for three years, and Officer A. Alvarez, 28, who's been a Houston police officer for two years, KHOU reports.

According to law enforcement sources, the suspect is Roland Caballero. They said he was taken into custody after a lengthy standoff at a residence. He had a gunshot wound to his neck when he was taken into custody. It's unknown if the wound was self-inflicted or if he was struck by officers' gunfire.

According to court records, Caballero was recently charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon and unlawful carrying of a weapon due to a felony conviction. He has at least three other felony convictions, according to records.
