PUTNAM TOWNSHIP (WWJ) – An armed standoff Wednesday in Livingston County ended peacefully, with the subject taken into custody for further evaluation.

Officers from the County Sheriff’s Department responded to a home in Putnam Township after receiving a tip from police in Plymouth that a man, possibly suicidal, was headed there.

When they arrived at the home, the man got out of his car with a gun.

After a nearly two-hour negotiation, the man surrendered to police and was placed in protective custody.
