A standoff at a West Toledo home Wednesday afternoon ended when a man surrendered to police.

Toledo police took the man into custody at about 5:45 p.m. No one was injured.

Police responded to 934 Keil Road about 3:45 p.m. on a call of a man threatening to kill himself. Authorities said that initially, at least four people were inside with the man, including his wife and three children, however, the man let them leave the house during the standoff.
