ARNOLD, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Officers finally took a man into custody Monday night after a standoff with authorities that lasted more than 12 hours. 

FBI requested help from the Jefferson County SWAT team in serving a search warrant just after 7 a.m.

The man had barricaded himself inside a duplex on Highview and Lonedell Road and was reportedly armed.

SWAT officers had an entire block on lockdown and FBI agents could be seen on the premises. The man reportedly closed off communication with negotiators and was contemplating suicide. 

Jefferson County officials said the standoff ended around 8 p.m.

Police said there were no hostages. 

We're expecting to learn more the FBI on Tuesday.
