STRATFORD, Conn. (AP) - Police say a four-hour standoff that started in the early morning hours when a man barricaded himself inside his Connecticut home and threatened to harm himself has ended without injuries.

Police in Stratford say the standoff began at about 2 a.m. Monday and ended about four hours later when the man was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.

Officers responded to the home to check on the 37-year-old man after receiving a report that he was suicidal.

A SWAT team and negotiators were called in when the man threatened to shoot himself.

The man was taken to the hospital for an evaluation.
