A man barricaded inside of a Denver home surrendered to police after about 20 minutes.

Officers responded to the house in the 2900 block of West 2nd Avenue, near Federal Boulevard and West 2nd, on Tuesday afternoon.

Several emergency responders were on scene as SWAT Team members surrounded the house.

A Denver7 photojournalist saw the man walk out of the house peacefully just before 5 p.m. Officers say he was wanted on domestic violence and felony menacing charges.

Nearby roads were closed during the standoff but have since reopened.
