A standoff between police and an armed individual in St. Paul on Monday afternoon has ended without further incident. 

According to St. Paul police spokesperson Steve Linders, the incident began on the 700 block of Jackson Street around 3 p.m. on a report of a "person in crisis" who was inside a residence making threats. 

Officers arrived at the scene and the armed individual came out of the house before going back inside. Another person exited the house with non-critical injuries and was taken to Regions Hospital for care. 

Around 5:30 p.m., police and St. Paul SWAT negotiators made the decision to "tactically disengage," according to Linders, who said the "person in crisis was no long a threat" so they decided to "back off and continue the investigation." 

No further information has been released.
