KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A standoff ended peacefully Friday morning with a man surrendering to police after barricading himself inside his home for several hours.

Police say the man surrendered peacefully around 4:30 a.m., after they called an 'Operation 100,' which brought in negotiators and tactical units to his home in the 3500 block of North College.

The incident started around 12:30 a.m., when the man's wife called police to say her husband was armed with an assault rifle and he pointed it at her face. The woman told police that she was able to escape to a neighbor's home and call them. She said her husband had been drinking and taking his prescription medications for ADHD at the same time.

Police waited outside the house for an hour and banged on windows and tried to get the man's attention. Officers say they were concerned because the man  had a rifle and there were other weapons in the house. Officers say they called an 'Operation 100' when they didn't hear anything.
