AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) -

Police have detained a man without incident outside an Amarillo home, ending a brief SWAT situation Monday afternoon.

The Amarillo Police Department said officers made contact with the man when they called him out with a loudspeaker. He was not armed and walked out toward the officers.

He will be taken an area hospital to determine if additional assistance is necessary. 

Heavily-armed personnel responded to the 3700 block of Harmony around 1 p.m. APD says a call was made by the man's family saying he had access to weapons and was threatening to hurt himself. 

Ridgecrest Elementary, a nearby school, was placed on lockout as police investigated.
