GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -- A 29-year-old West Michigan man has been arrested after a 4-hour standoff with police.

MLive.com reports that officers were called to a Grand Rapids home about 5 a.m. Saturday for a domestic complaint involving a man with a gun.

Grand Rapids police Lt. Scott Weitzel says the man's girlfriend and several children fled unhurt from the house, but the man remained inside with a 5-year-old boy.

The man eventually surrendered about 9 a.m. The boy was unharmed.
