LINCOLN, Del.- A 66-year-old man who barricaded himself inside a home in Lincoln for several hours Wednesday is now in custody, according to Delaware State Police. 

State troopers said they responded to the home located on Johnson Road shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday for a welfare check. They were called to check on an "unstable male subject alone in the house."

Throughout the morning DSP Special Operations Response Team and Conflict Management Teams attempted to make contact with the man and persuade him to surrender.

At approximately 1:25 p.m., the man was taken into custody upon leaving the home.  He was then transported to an area hospital for an evaluation.

Detectives continue to investigate this incident and charges may be forthcoming, according to police.

Johnson Road was closed between US113 and North Old State Road for several hours, has since been reopened.  

Several homes in the area were evacuated as a precaution while the incident was underway, according to police.
