(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Multiple officers responded to a home in St. Joseph Wednesday after a report of a man with gun.

Seven patrol cars were lined up along the 5200 block of Pickett Road around 1 p.m. They responded after someone said the man was possibly armed outside the home.

When officers arrived, they found a man inside the home. They also found a gun, but determined the man was not an immediate threat to others. They were concerned he might harm himself.

An ambulance also responded to the home, but police took the man in a squad car.

Neighbors said they believe the man is dealing with a sick friend and could be battling depression.
