The standoff started about 3 p.m. when a man called police saying his brother-in-law had threatened him with a gun.

Around 6:30 p.m., police were able to get the man out of the house, in the 600 block of West Neely, and he is expected to be charged with aggravated assault. The gunman’s wife as well as four small children were in the house.
