MORRISTOWN, Vt. -

Police say a gunshot was fired during a standoff in Morristown Monday night.

Officers created a perimeter around the house on Wabun Avenue, where they say a suicidal man with a gun had barricaded himself. Police say one gunshot was heard coming from inside, but no one was hurt. They evacuated neighbors and also got other people inside the man's home out safely. They were then able to talk with the man and get him to surrender.

The man is now at the hospital for evaluation.
