Detroit — A barricaded gunman situation came to a peaceful ending early Monday after about an eight hour standoff.

According to reports, the gunman gave himself up at about 2 a.m.

The situation began at about 6 p.m. Sunday when the suspect, identified by police as Lee Burrell, 45, fired on officers who had been called to the area after receiving reports of gunfire in the area of 3900 Joy Road.

Officers returned fire but no one was injured, police said.

Burrell, who police said may be bipolar, ran across the street from a dollar store and into a former hardware store building, where he lives on the upper floors.
