Authorities said a hostage situation involving a mentally ill man and his mother was peacefully resolved on Monday.

Police say the suspect's mother called 911 and said her son had barricaded her inside the home on Meadowview Drive in Decatur.

A SWAT team was called out and residents in the area were asked to remain in their homes.

As negotiators talked with the man, they said he threw at least two guns out of the home.

By 3:30 p.m., authorities had talked the man out of the home, and his mother was said to be OK.

DeKalb County crisis management talked with the suspect to determine his mental state. They planned to conduct a mental evaluation.

He will be charged with false imprisonment after the evaluation, authorities said.

Police said at this point, they do not know what had triggered the situation.
