SYCAMORE TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - A SWAT standoff at a busy Sycamore Township gas station off Interstate  71 near the Kenwood Towne Center is over.

An employee at the Shell gas station on Montgomery Road called 911 about 8:30 a.m. Monday and told a dispatcher a man was locked in the bathroom with a gun threatening to shoot himself in the head.

The man refused to come out, so the Hamilton County Police Association SWAT team was summoned.

The standoff ended shortly before 11 a.m. with the man seen walking out in handcuffs.

No injuries were reported.
