SALLISAW, Oklahoma - The Sequoyah County Sheriff's Office says the Cherokee Nation deputy marshal who barricaded himself in a home Thursday surrendered peacefully early Friday.

Sheriff Ron Lockhart told KFSM, the CBS affiliate in Fort Smith, the unidentified man gave up peacefully after talking with Oklahoma Highway Patrol and Cherokee Nation negotiators for more than 10 hours.

Lockhart says the deputy marshal was taken to a mental health facility after his surrender.

Several law enforcement agencies responded at about 4:30 a.m. Thursday in reference to a man who had barricaded himself inside a home in Sallisaw.

Lockhart said deputies were unsure if there were weapons inside the home. He said the man was alone but was talking with law enforcement on the phone.

The Cherokee Nation Marshal Service said the home is owned by Cherokee Nation Entertainment.

No residents near the home were evacuated according to Lockhart.
