Man Arrested After Hours-long Standoff

An El Dorado Hills neighborhood is returning to normal after a man kept everyone at bay during a standoff. 

Police say a suicidal man is in custody after barricading himself inside his home for more than five hours. SWAT Teams responded to the house yesterday evening after deputies received reports the man was threatening to shoot anyone who approached his home. 

For the public's safety, El Dorado Hills Boulevard was closed between Wilson Boulevard and Olsen Lane.

The man -- who also threatened to kill himself -- stayed inside the home while SWAT tried talking him out.

Around 10:30 p.m. the man surrendered peacefully. No word yet of what charges -- if any -- he'll face.
