A man was taken to the hospital after a police standoff in Wethersfield ended peacefully Thursday.

Police Chief James Cetran said officers were called a home on Westwood Hill around 2 p.m. for a report of a man inside a house with a gun. When they arrived they found a family safely outside and heard the man inside, yelling at officers.

"He was in the house by himself. He did yell at the officers to go away," Centran explained.

Police evacuated surrounding homes as a precaution. After speaking with negotiators, the man came out. No shots were fired and no serious injuries reported, police said.

The man does not have a criminal history, according to police, and they have no knowledge of past incidents at the home.

There is no word on whether any charges will be filed.
