A SWAT situation in the south-central part of the valley ended Monday night with the suspect in custody.
Police were called to the scene around 6 p.m. near Gilespie Street and East Silverado Ranch Boulevard. They say an armed man had barricaded himself inside a home and was threatening to possibly hurt himself.
There was an enormous police presence in the area, and neighbors were evacuated.
Neighbors say the suspect was a former police officer, but Metro has not confirmed that information. After four hours, officers resolved the situation peacefully and took the suspect into custody.
