NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

One man is in custody and three juveniles are unharmed after a SWAT roll ended peacefully Friday in Gentilly.

The standoff near St. Anthony and Selma began just before 1 p.m. after reports of a domestic incident.

Police said a man had barricaded himself in a home with three children.

At around 3:15 p.m, the SWAT truck moved in, with several shielded officers following alongside it.

Moments later, a man emerged from the house and officers took him down without incident.

There is no word on the man's identity or any charges he may face.

As an alternative, omit the cheese and have pork chops and scalloped potatoes instead.
