PROVIDENCE, R.I.- A six-hour standoff between a barricaded man and Providence police ends peacefully.

Deputy Police Chief Paul Kennedy says a man armed with a gun locked himself inside a third-floor apartment with someone else around 2 am. A police special-tactics team surrounded the apartment building.

The gunman surrendered to police several hours later. Authorities haven't released the arrested man's name.
