MT. JULIET, Tenn. (WKRN) – Mt. Juliet police spent more than five hours outside a home on Newberry Lane in the Chandler Pointe subdivision Friday after a man barricaded himself inside.
Police received a call around 10:15 a.m. that a 52-year-old man was trying to harm himself.

Eight neighboring homes were evacuated as a precaution.
During the incident the man called a local news agency and their staff assisted authorities in the situation.
At 3:30 p.m., Mt. Juliet police tweeted that the scene was safe and the suspect was no longer barricaded.
Officials said the man, whose name was not released, will receive the care he needs.
