VIRGINIA BEACH -A six-hour standoff in Va. Beach ended peacefully late Sunday.  

Police say a man threatening to harm himself was alone in an apartment at Latitudes apartment homes. Authorities were called to the complex on Chase Pointe Circle at 5:40 p.m., said spokeswoman Grazia Moyers.

At 8:35 p.m., after officers couldn't make contact with him, the SWAT team was called in.

The situation ended at 11:40 p.m. with the man taken into custody. He wasn't hurt, Moyers stated.

The man's name wasn't released and Moyers said no criminal charges will be placed due to the nature of the call.
