Maryville Police say the standoff near campus Saturday night ended well.

Officers were called to the area near 3rd and Walnut Streets just before 7 O'clock Saturday night on a report of a man threatening to harm himself. They set up a perimeter, blocking that area to traffic for about 3 hours. Maryville Public Safety lieutenant Ron Christian says extra help was brought in to try and help diffuse the standoff.
