JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A standoff between a man who barricaded himself inside a Northwest Jacksonville home and the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office SWAT Team ended peacefully early Monday morning.

According to Lt. Mike Powers, the Sheriff's Office received a call around 8:21 p.m. about a man firing several gunshots outside a home at 52340 Roanoke Boulevard.

The SWAT team responded and began negotiating with the man.

After nearly five hours, police said the man was taken into custody at 1:15 a.m. without incident.
