Regina police were asking people to stay away from the 1000 block of Retallack for a short time Tuesday afternoon.
Around 12:30, they were sent to a home after a report a man had entered a home with a firearm in his possession.
A perimeter was set up as the occupants of the home exited.
A man and woman remained inside with the woman leaving after a while.
The man refused to leave and threatened to harm himself and police resulting in the SWAT unit being called.
Before the SWAT team arrived, the man gave himself up peacefully and was placed under custody.
An investigation continues.
