Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - An update to a story we first told you about last night involving a man and a loaded gun.

About 8:30, police were called to this home on the 400 block of 30th Avenue in north Moorhead when a complaint was called into police about a disturbance inside the home.

Police responded to the scene to find a man inside the home with a loaded rifle.

More officers were then called in and after five minutes, a peaceful resolution was made and the man was taken to a local hospital where he was placed on a temporary "hold."

Lt. Tory Jacobson, Moorhead Police Department: “Ultimately this individual was safely taken into custody. Officers did observe that he did have a rifle and we were later able to confirm that it was loaded but through successful negotiations they were able to have him exit the house safely ultimately placing him on emergency hold.”

Moorhead Police say no charges are being pressed at this time.
