A police standoff in Earlsboro, Oklahoma, ended peacefully with the arrest of the suspect Wednesday afternoon.

According to the Pottawatomie County Sheriff Mike Booth, at about 12:30 p.m., authorities responded to a domestic situation at a home on Chambers Road, just south of Highway 9 in Earlsboro.

The suspect reportedly barricaded himself inside the home when authorities arrived. His wife said no one else was in the house, but there were weapons inside.

No one was injured in the incident.

Authorities have not identified the suspect at this time.
