MIDLAND - A Midland man is under observation at the hospital after barricading himself in his home with a gun.

Police got the call around 10:30 Tuesday morning to go to the home on Delano.

They say the 49-year-old man had a gun and asked his family to leave.

They immediately called 911.

Parts of Midkiff and Delano were blocked off while negotiators tried to get him to come out.

After about an hour, he surrendered peacefully and was taken to the hospital to get checked out.
