      Man who barricaded himself in a home with a gun in custody

      No charges will be filed in the standoff Wednesday in Socastee, according to Horry County Police Sgt. Robert Kegler.

      A neighbor, who regularly checks on the older man at his home on Plantation Road, went into the man's home to check on him and the man fired shots at the neighbor, Sgt. Kegler said.

      The neighbor left and called police about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.

      Horry County SWAT responded and got the man to surrender, without using any force, less than an hour later.

      EMS took the man to the hospital for a mental evaluation.

      No one was hurt.
