The Lincoln police SWAT team took a suicidal 62-year-old man into emergency protective custody Thursday afternoon after a three-hour standoff, a spokeswoman said.
Police were called to the area of South First and West G streets at about 12:45 p.m. after a woman reported her boyfriend had a gun and wanted to harm himself, Officer Angela Sands said Friday.
Officers found the man in his truck and negotiated with him for two hours, Sands said.
The SWAT team arrived just before 2:30 p.m. and started talking to him, Sands said.
He was taken into custody without incident a short time later.
