A four-hour standoff in which police exchanged gunfire with a man holed up in a New Bedford condominium ended with the suspect in custody. Police Chief David Provencher said officers responded to the Southcoast Condominiums complex at about 5 p.m. Thursday for reports of a despondent and suicidal man.

Provencher credited police negotiators with getting the man to surrender at about 9 p.m. (AP)
