RED BANK, TN (WRCB) -

A standoff at an apartment complex on Dayton Boulevard ended peaceably Sunday afternoon.

Red Bank police officers responded to a "shots fired" call around 2:00 p.m.  The man in the apartment refused to open the door. Officers report having dealt with the man on several occasions over the past few days. 

Officers got a commitment order for the man but he barricaded himself inside the apartment and began making threats to harm himself and other.

SWAT was called in for assistance and tried to get him to come out.  

After several hours the man surrendered to authorities and was taken to the hospital to be checked out.
