WOODBURY HEIGHTS — A standoff in Woodbury Heights ended peacefully when a man barricaded inside a home surrendered to police Sunday morning.
The incident ended at about 11:05 a.m., about 51 minutes after it started, police said.
The incident resulted from a fight between the owner of the home on Glassboro Road and his 19-year-old son, who wound up barricaded — with a gun, according to early reports — inside the house at about 10:14 a.m.
At one point during the standoff, there was a report broadcast on police radio that someone heard a shotgun being racked, but police said that did not happen.
Officers evacuated houses within a 400-yard radius around the house and Glassboro Road was closed between Mail Avenue and Clearview Avenue, said police.
Investigator Gary Krohn spent 30 minutes on the telephone with the 19-year-old and convinced him to come out, said police.
The teenager came out the front door with his hands in the air and was handcuffed by several officers.
The man was taken to police headquarters and the incident is still under investigation.
Residents were allowed to return to their homes.
