PICKENS, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Pickens County deputies and paramedics had a Norris-area home surrounded for hours on Monday.

Deputies said they responded to a home on Old School Road to a man who was threatening to commit suicide due to marital problems.

Several roads were blocked off while officials tried to communicate with the man.

Deputies said the man turned himself in at about 5:30 p.m.

"Through great negotiations all afternoon long, there was a tremendous job by our deputies and our negotiating team, especially the first responders on scene. We came to a successful outcome,"said Sheriff Rick Clark.

We're told no one was hurt and the man was taken to the hospital for a mental evaluation.
