Part of Carleton Place was closed Monday morning for a police investigation. Witnesses say a man was threatening to harm himself.

Police were called to the area around 10:30 a.m. High Street was closed from Thomas Street to Flora Street, and tactical officers were seen patrolling the scene.

Homes in a several-block radius were evacuated.

OPP say the incident ended peacefully and the man was taken into custody.

The road in Carleton Place  has since been reopened.
