(CHICAGO) A man barricaded himself inside a South Loop high rise for more than seven hours from Monday night into early Tuesday, prompting a SWAT team response.

About 7:40 p.m., officers responded to a call of a domestic disturbance in a high rise in the 1100 block of South Michigan, police said.

A man, whose exact age wasn’t available, remained locked in a room until he was taken into custody “without incident” at about 2:50 a.m. Tuesday, police said.

No injuries were reported.
