An armed police standoff in Lacon ended peacefully.

A little after 8 o’clock Wednesday night officers were told that a 31-year-old man had posted threats online and was seen outside of his home with a gun.  Police set up a perimeter at the house in the 500 block of South Prairie Street.  According to the Marshall County Sheriff's Department, after three hours had passed, a friend was able to talk the armed man out of his home.  He was taken by police for observation at a hospital.

No charges have been announced yet.
