The Lower Merion police went out to a home on Bowman Ave for the report of a "despondent person who is suicidal". The police blocked off roadways surrounding the home.

Shortly after 4:00 p.m., the man surrendered to police.

Lower Merion elementary students were allowed to leave by bus only. Those children who walk to school had to be picked up by a guardian.

There were no hostages.
