The incident at a Lansing home that caused two schools to go on lockdown is over. Police say the incident ended peacefully and the suspect was taken away in an ambulance.

The incident started around 9:45 Thursday morning after someone call 911 to report a man was vandalizing a vehicle on Ora Street near Jolly Road.

When officers arrived, the suspect started swinging a metal pipe at them, then entered his house. Police had reason to believe there were weapons inside that home, so a perimeter was set up. Police, fire and a SWAT team all responded to the scene.

Police established contact with the suspect inside the home, but communication was sporadic. Shortly before 1pm, the suspect was removed from the home peacefully and put in an ambulance.

We'll have more on this story tonight on News 10 at 5 and 6pm.
