David Eugene McIntyre, 47, of the 25000 block of Hardin Store Road threatened two people on the property with a weapon. As deputies arrived they made a decision to call SWAT to the scene. McIntyre has a long history with Montgomery County. With prior SWAT scenes at the location deputies did not want to take any chances. Units responding to the scene were told to do so without sirens as they approached the area.
The SWAT negotiation team was able to convince McIntyre to give himself up. He was taken into custody without incident just after 6p.
In 1990 McIntyre was convicted of killing a 15-year-old boy and was given 20-years by a Montgomery County jury. He was released on Mandatory Supervision in November 2008. He has been diagnosed as a manic depressive and suffers from bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
On December 17, 2009 the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office issued a missing and endangered persons alert for McIntyre after he had sent his parole officer a letter stating he would not show up for a December 16, 2009 parole visit. At the time the Parole Officer said McIntyre is “very paranoid, has extreme delusions,is agitated easily, does not like large groups of people or strangers and can be very violent.”
In that case he was found under the Spring Creek bridge on SH 249 two days later. A year before that when he went missing he was found under the San Jacinto River bridge on Interstate 45.
