A 31-year-old Janesville man is undergoing a medical assessment after a more than two-hour stand off with police Wednesday morning.

Police Lieutenant Tim Hiers says the suspect surrendered peacefully to SWAT Team members at the 1257 Badger street residence. The stand-off followed a domestic incident involving the same man the night before. Police responded after receiving a call the suspect may have been planning to harm himself.

A firearm was found at the home.
