Posted: Updated:

A standoff was reported on School House Road in Wallingford Friday afternoon, according to police.

A woman said she called police on her son, who has not been identified, because he was despondent and suicidal.

Police said that when they arrived, the man pulled a gun on officers and he was arrested before being transported to Yale-New Haven Hospital to be evaluated.

Police seized the gun in the incident, another handgun and a BB gun from the home.

During the incident, police said they notified officials at Cook Hill Elementary School as a precaution, but there was never any threat to the school.

It is unclear if the school was ever in lockdown.

No further information was available.
