LINCOLN (AP) — A man has been taken into custody, peacefully ending his standoff with officers about a mile east of the Capitol in Lincoln.

Officers were sent to the residence Wednesday afternoon after learning that the man was threatening to shoot others with a rifle and kill himself. No shots or injuries have been reported.

Lincoln police Capt. Mayde McGuire said the man gave up around 8 p.m., about four hours after officers arrived. His name hasn't been released.
