WINFIELD, Kan. (AP) -- A man is in custody and will have a mental evaluation after a standoff that lasted nearly eight hours in south-central Kansas.

KAKE-TV reports (http://bit.ly/16VXfQh ) the standoff at a home in Winfield began around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday. The man was upset with his family and fired several shots into the air, but had already gone back inside the home by the time police arrived.

Officers from several police and sheriffs' departments responded, along with a Kansas Bureau of Investigation agent who lives in Winfield.

The man surrendered peacefully around 4 p.m. He's described as being in his 30s and possibly suffering from mental health issues, including post-traumatic stress disorder.
