ST. JOHNS COUNTY -- The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office was working a scene on Highland Avenue off of State Road 207 where a man had barricaded himself in his home.

Chuck Mulligan said the man had surrendered and no one was hurt.

The man is known to the Sheriff's Office for having many "life issues" and the Public Information Officer with St. Johns County said that there was no one inside of the home with the man, but they were aware of him having one firearm.

The surrounding homes had been evacuated just as a safety precaution.
