A nearly three-hour standoff with police at a Land Park home ended peacefully Thursday evening with a man's surrender.
Police spokesman Sgt. Andrew Pettit said officers were called to a family disturbance in the 1300 block of Seventh Avenue about 4:45 p.m.
Everyone in the family subsequently left the house except the man, whom police identified as Gregory Dumond, 48. Family members told officers that he may have had a shotgun.
Negotiators spoke at length with Dumond, who initially refused to come outside. He turned himself in and was arrested about 7:30 p.m, Pettit said.
The standoff closed a portion of Seventh Avenue to traffic and forced several neighbors to evacuate their homes.
