CASS LAKE, Minn. (AP) - A Cass Lake man remains in custody following a hostage incident and standoff with law enforcement officers.

The Cass County sheriff's office said in a statement Friday that it got a call early Wednesday about a man barricaded in a residence who had a gun, was making threats, and indicated he was holding a female hostage.

The statement says the 31-year-old suspect surrendered his weapon after several hours of negotiations. He was arrested and the hostage was freed.
