ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – A stand off ended peacefully in St. Louis early Monday morning after the SWAT Team was called in.

Authorities say an individual refused to leave a home in the 4500 block of Tennessee early Monday.  Authorities were called to the home around 4:30 a.m. for some sort of disturbance.

When the man did not come out, authorities were able to reach him on the phone and convinced him to come out around 6:40 a.m.   It is unclear what started the situation or if any charges will be filed.
