Authorities say a man who was barricaded inside a home in New Jersey for several hours has been taken into custody.

The incident took plance on Fourth Street in Hazlet and ended just before 10 p.m.

Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office spokesman Charles Webster tells the Asbury Park Press that there were no injuries and no shots fired after Sunday night's standoff.

He says neighboring homes were evacuated as a safety precaution.

The man has not been identified, and it was not immediately known what he's being charged with.
