ALEXANDRIA, Va. — A man is in custody after he experienced a mental crisis and barricaded himself inside of his home in Fort Hunt, Virginia.

Officials say the situation began around 8 p.m. Sunday night in the 8600 block of Thomas J. Stockton Parkway. Police said that two children were also in the house. Officers remained on the scene as they try to peacefully negotiate with the man inside.

The children exited the home safely around 1 p.m. and were taken into protective custody. The suspect remained uncooperative and started going in and out of the house, so police tased him. He was taken into custody and brought to a local hospital for treatment.

There were no other injuries.
