WARREN TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a SWAT team removed a man from his central New Jersey home after he threatened to harm himself and family members.

Somerset County prosecutors say police responded to the Warren Township home around 6:15 a.m. Sunday after officials with a suicide hotline notified authorities about a “potential threat” there involving the 22-year-old man.

The county SWAT team was soon called in because weapons were present in the home.

SWAT team members made contact with the home’s occupants around 7:45 a.m. The man was soon removed from the home without incident and was taken to a hospital for a mental health evaluation.

No injuries were reported in the incident.

Prosecutors say no charges have been filed, but the investigation remains ongoing.
