A Chicago SWAT team was called to an Edgewater home after it was reported that a man with a gun was inside, according to area police.

The situation happened around 6:15 p.m. Thursday evening. SWAT teams reported to the residence on the 5600 block of N. Magnolia Ave. between Ridge and Hollywood. The usually quiet residential street was blocked off by police for hours.

At around 9 p.m., the adult male surrendered to police without further incident. He was the only person at the apartment.
