A SWAT team responded about 4:45 a.m. to a man barricaded alone inside a home in the 8200 block of South Dante, according to Chicago Police. It was not known if he was armed.
Police said the man was detained without incident about 1:30 p.m. that day. He was taken to St. Bernard Hospital for psychiatric evaluation.
