LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - After more than six hours, a standoff between Lake Charles Police and an armed man has ended.

The man surrendered to authorities just before 11:00pm Thursday night. Lake Charles Police say the drama began to unfold around 4:30pm on East LaGrange Street when police tried to arrest a man wanted for outstanding warrants.

Officials say the man fled into a house where he was believed to be armed. While the man was barricaded in the home on East LaGrange between Common and Ryan Street, police shutdown nearby streets.

The drama ended when the man surrendered.
