The tense situation between police and a man held up inside a local home has ended peacefully. 

The standoff began about 6:30 p.m. Monday in the Huron County community of Pigeon. 

Pigeon Police Chief Eric Wissner said the suspect, a man in his late 30s, pointed a gun at a neighbor. He then barricaded himself in the home at the corner of Main Street and Kraft Street. 

The chief said there was no history of trouble between the neighbors, but the suspect may have been in a domestic dispute with his girlfriend. Alcohol is also believed to have been involved, Wissner said. 

The man came out of the home and surrendered to police around 4:30 a.m. He was taken to a hospital in Pigeon for observation. 

Wissner said no one else was inside the home during the standoff, and there were no injuries.
