Plains -- A stand-off lasting several hours Sunday morning ends peacefully in Plains.

Police officers were called to 106 Highway 308 South in Plains at around 5:00 AM Sunday morning.

A former National Guard held several people in that home at gun point. Officers were able to talk to the man and get his gun.

But he ran back into the home where several other guns were held. Sumter Sheriff's deputies then came out and assisted in calming the man down.

He was not arrested. Authorities say that he went out of control after his mother died of cancer.
