TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A SWAT situation lasting nearly seven hours has ended.

Pima County Sheriff's Department officials confirmed a suicidal man barricaded himself in a residence in the 7500 block of S. Woodbury Grove Place, near Los Reales and Camino Verde Thursday afternoon.

The man's friend called the Sheriff's Office just before 2 p.m. SWAT assisted at the scene where some homes in the neighborhood were evacuated, officials said.

Authorities said the evacuation was lifted around 9:30 p.m. when the suspect allegedly attempted to kill himself and was taken to a local hospital.
