A barricade situation, blocking off Prince Rd. for multiple hours -- ended peacefully around 7:00 p.m. Sunday night. 

Tucson Police initially responded to a call to the 500 Block of E. Gay St. on the west side. Officers on the scene believed they heard a gun shot come from inside the house, so they called for more resources and backed away from the home. After the situation ended, they found out no shots were fired -- the man inside had broken a window with a baseball bat.

More than 20 law enforcement vehicles showed up -- a S.W.A.T. vehicle, police officers, and negotiators.

After a few hours of negotiations, the man inside surrendered peacefully. Police say there was nobody else in the house and no hostage situation -- he was alone.

He was taken to a nearby hospital to be evaluated. No criminal charges have been filed, and nobody was injured.
