Swat Standoff

It happened at a home on Wright Street this morning. Investigators say the suspect's wife called police, saying her husband was threatening to kill himself.

Police quickly surrounded the home and for nearly two hours they tried to convince the suspect to come out peacefully, luckily no one was hurt.

The suspect has not yet been charged and therefore his name has not been released.
