GADSDEN, Ala. (WIAT) An early morning standoff in east Alabama ends peacefully.

Police responded after receiving a call from a young female inside a home off Merryhill Avenue told authorities another resident, a 35-year-old man, was waving a gun and threatening to kill everyone inside the home: at least five people home at the time when the incident erupted.

Moments after the first call, the gunman’s mother also called to tell police he man was now threatening suicide.

The situation was resolved about an hour after police intervened.

The case remains under investigation.
