MIDLAND - SWAT officers had to block off a portion of a Midland neighborhood on Friday afternoon.

They were called out to a home in the 100 block of Windridge, just off of north Big Spring, around 2:30.           

Police tell NewsWest 9, a 55-year-old man was threatening to kill himself.

As a precaution, the SWAT team closed off part of the street.

He eventually came out of the home and was taken to Midland Memorial Hospital for evaluation.

Officers did find a rifle inside the home but it was not loaded.
