    Authorities in Athol, Massachusetts, have ended a incident with a barricaded man.

    Police say it happened just before 1 a.m. on Thursday when police responded to a report of gunshots, and a man would not come out of a house on Chester Street.

    State police arrived and were able to negotiate with the man, whose name was not released, to get him out of the home, where law enforcement was able to arrest him.

    Police say there were no hostages.

    The suspect will be arraigned at Orange District Court later Thursday.

    No other details were immediately provided.
