WESTON, Wis. (AP) -

A 27-year-old man inside a home on Castleberry Circle who threatened to shoot his family, according to the Everest Metro Police Department. 

Authorities said the man's brother was the only other person home and he left and called his parents. That's when police responded. 

Concerned neighbors said they called police and they were told to stay inside during the active situation. 

"Definitely brings comfort to know that it wasn't some crazy maniac running around the neighborhood," said Rhonda Boettcher. "It's unfortunate that anyone has to be in any danger to begin with."

Police said the man surrendered around 4:15 p.m. on Monday. 

Everest Metro Police Department, Marathon County Sheriff's Department and the SWAT team responded to the situation.
