Lansing Police Department says a standoff at a Lansing home has ended after about three hours on Wednesday.

It began around 1 p.m. when LPD received a tip that a parole absconder was at a house in the 1300 block of West Saginaw Street in Lansing.

When police arrived, the 34-year-old man ran inside, police said.

Police knew he had a history of being armed and they set up a perimeter around the house and called in the SWAT team.

Saginaw Street between Pennsylvania Avenue and Marshall Street was closed at around 3:11 p.m. but is back open.

Police said they found the man and another man, a 28-year-old wanted for felonious assault, inside the home.
