A man was in custody Monday after barricading himself inside a Palmetto Bay home for hours, police said.

Miami-Dade Police, SWAT and tactical response units were outside the home near southwest 82nd and 83rd avenues after a man in his 70s called for medical help.

When paramedics showed up, they believed he had a gun in his hands, police said. Police later responded, but the man wouldn't come out.

Police believe the man might have accidentally called for medical help and could have been confused.

The standoff lasted about five hours. Police haven't confirmed how the standoff ended or if the man was arrested.
