PITMAN, N.J. (AP) - A police standoff in Pitman ended peacefully after five hours.

The Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office says a man in a home on Columbia Avenue threatened to harm himself and refused to leave his home Tuesday.

Authorities negotiated with the man until he surrendered.

The man was taken to a hospital for observation and authorities have not decided whether to file charges against him.

His name has not been released.
