Standoff in Spring Hill neighborhood ends

- Deputies in Hernando County say a standoff with a "barricaded subject" has ended.

It was just after noon when the sheriff's office crisis team was called to the 8000 block of Begonia Street for negotiations with a man who was apparently not willing to come out of a home, though they have not said what, if anything, the man was wanted for.

He finally surrendered to the SWAT team around 5:30.

"The male was treated on scene by paramedics from Hernando County Fire/Rescue then transported to a local hospital," a sheriff's office update stated.

Deputies have not said what led to the standoff.
