A St. Clair Shores man is undergoing medical treatment following an armed standoff on Friday that spanned four hours, police said.

Police said the incident took place at 1 p.m. Friday in the 22800 block of Lake Drive near Jefferson Avenue after the man's family called EMS for assistance.

When EMS arrived, the man declined help and picked up a weapon, causing the family to exit the residence, police said.

Police officers then arrived on scene and connected by phone with the man. After a lengthy negotiation, the man exited the home without incident, police said. 

The resident was taken to an undisclosed hospital for medical treatment.
