JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A man is in custody after the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office SWAT responded to the 2200 block of Park Street Friday evening and evacuated the area for the public's safety.

A concerned family member called JSO at about 2:21 p.m. after 35-year-old Joshua Delane Boatman allegedly made suicidal and homicidal threats to his wife, according to JSO Public Information Office Melissa Bujeda.

The SWAT team was then called to the area and a warrant was obtained for Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon. Boatman then surrendered peacefully and was arrested, Bujeda said.

Boatman was set to be Baker Acted and will then be held on $500,000 bond. Bujeda said JSO thanks people for their their patience during the situation.
