FARGO, N.D. — A standoff between an armed man and SWAT team officers ended without injury in Fargo.

Police were called to a home Saturday where the gunman was reportedly suicidal. KFGO reports there was another person in the house, but authorities say the man was not making threats against that person. The Red River Valley tactical officers were deployed and neighborhood streets were barricaded.

The man was arrested without incident about 2½ hours after the standoff began.
