    A shelter-in-place ended Wednesday afternoon after multiple law enforcement agencies searched for an armed man threatening to harm himself in Amesbury, Massachusetts.

    Police confirmed just before 4 p.m. that the situtation at Amesbury Town Forest off Kimball Road was "safe and secure."

    Authorities responded late Wednesday morning after receiving a 911 call from a person claiming to have a gun. Police said he threatened to harm himself.

    The Northeastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council responded alongside troopers, the strategic team and the air wing of Massachusetts State Police. Officers from Amesbury and nearby Merrimac were also on the scene.

    While school is no longer in session, workers at the Charles C. Cashman Elementary School and Amesbury were asked to enter "safe mode," and residents were asked to shelter in place.

    The name of the man has not been released.
