LINCOLN PARK – A 27-year-old employee of Hop Sheing Noodle House, 4232 Fort St., surrendered to police Thursday night after threatening suicide and barricading himself with a gun in a back room.

Officers negotiated with the man, who surrendered unharmed after about four-and-a-half hours, and was taken to a nearby hospital for evaluation, Police Chief Raymond Watters said.

He said the incident began about 4 p.m. when police received calls from restaurant patrons that a man was suicidal. He then locked himself in a back room. No other people were at risk, and no shots were fired, Watters said.

Wyandotte police were on the scene to assist Lincoln Park officers.
