HUGO, Minn. (AP) - A felon wanted on federal and state warrants is in custody following a 7-hour standoff in Hugo.

Authorities say a SWAT team was called around midnight after they learned the man was inside a mobile home in Hugo. The man is wanted on felony warrants involving guns and drugs.

Negotiators began talking with the man and he eventually came out with his hands up about 7 a.m. Thursday.

KARE-TV (https://kare11.tv/1JsgztL ) says a woman and child were inside the trailer during the standoff, but were not harmed. Neighbors were told to stay locked inside their homes and away from windows as the standoff dragged on.
