A Sebring man has been taken to the hospital for evaluation after a nearly three-hour standoff Tuesday afternoon.

According to a Facebook post from the Sebring Police Department, police received a call just before 2:30 p.m. Tuesday in reference to a 40-year-old male who allegedly barricaded himself in his apartment on Alabama Avenue with weapons.

Police say the male made threats to kill his family and several public officials.

Upon arrival, police attempted to get the male to come outside so he could get help, but he refused according to police. That's when the Mahoning County Crisis Response team got involved.

Police say negotiators with the Crisis Response Team continued to attempt to get the male to come out, but he continually refused.

Eventually, police say the decision was made to force entry into the apartment to prevent the male from harming himself. At this point, police say the suspect was compliant and dropped his knife. He was safely removed from the apartment.

The male was taken to the hospital for an evaluation and the scene was cleared around 5:30 p.m. There is no word yet on if any charges will be filed.

The Smith Township and Goshen Township Police Departments assisted Sebring and the Crisis Response Team in the incident.
