HARRISBURG — A police standoff ended peacefully in Harrisburg Thursday night.

Police were called to a home in the 1200 block of Hudson Street for a report of a man acting erratically and carrying a gun.

Police eventually made entrance into the residence and apprehended the man. Police say the weapon was a pellet gun.

The man was taken into custody to be evaluated, according to police.

There’s no word on if charges will be filed.
