PEACEFUL ENDING AFTER ARMED MAN BARRICADES HIMSELF IN HOME IN LENOIR CITY

A large presence of law enforcement responded today to a home on the 4,000 block of Harrison Lane in Lenoir City.

Officers say a woman called authorities saying her husband was threatening himself and others in the home with a firearm.

Once law enforcement arrived the man barricaded himself inside the residence armed with a weapon.

Deputies negotiated with the man for more than an hour.

Just after noon Eastern, the man came out of the home and was taken into custody.

He was taken for a mental evaluation.

No injuries were reported.

The name of the man was not initially released.
