MANCHESTER, Mo. (KSDK) - The situation is all clear after the St. Louis County team assisted Manchester police with a man who had barricaded himself in a home in the 400 block of Auber Drive Wednesday night. 

It started at 7:25 p.m., when Manchester Officers were dispatched to 415 Auber Drive after a report about a suicidal suspect with a gun. When officers arrived on the scene, a female resident said her 38-year-old ex-boyfriend was suicidal, armed with a handgun and had barricaded himself in a bedroom. 

Manchester Officers tried to communicate with the subject and asked for additional response from the St. Louis County Police Department Tact Unit. 

Authorities established a perimeter around the house, and a military friend spoke to the subject from the street. 

At approximately 8:55 p.m., the Tact Unit arrived and, after talking to the subject on the phone, persuaded him to surrender. He was taken into custody by Manchester Officers at 9:15 p.m. and taken to a nearby hospital for a psychiatric evaluation. 

Two fully-loaded guns with additional ammunition were seized during the incident. 

No additional information was immediately available.
