FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- Allen County Sheriff's deputies say what started as an outstanding warrant ended nearly 3 hours later with a peaceful surrender.

Deputies say they initially went to a home on the 4600 block of Maple Terrace Parkway at 3:08 p.m. to serve a man an outstanding warrant.

That's when they say the man, armed with a handgun, engaged them in a conversation. Deputies say he then began threatening his own life and refused to come out of the house. 

The department's SWAT team, joined by Fort Wayne Police, surrounded the home. 

Deputies say the man peacefully surrendered at 5:56 p.m.

His name has not been released.
