Neighbors evacuated during Germantown standoff

GERMANTOWN, Wis. (AP) - Neighbors in a small Washington County community were evacuated when a man barricaded himself in a home with more than 20 guns.

A SWAT team surrounded the house Sunday afternoon. The standoff ended five hours later. Authorities say the man took his own life.

WISN-TV says after neighbors returned to their homes, the bomb squad was called because of possible explosives in the home. Police say officers found two replica hand grenades.
