PHOENIX (KSAZ) -

The Phoenix Police SWAT team negotiated with a man who was holed up in an apartment and armed with a handgun near 39th Avenue and Camelback Road.

Earlier Friday morning, officers had to blow out one of the lights in the Estanica del Sol complex.  The reasoning behind that decision is not known at this time.

Police were called to the scene around 9:30 p.m. Thursday night for reports of a domestic dispute between a man and woman.  Authorities say the woman was able to get out of the apartment uninjured.

Several units near where the dispute took place were evacuated. Those people are still waiting to re-enter their homes.

Just after 5 a.m., put down his weapon and surrendered.  Police took him into custody.

Video: FOX 10's Anita Roman reports from the scene.
