A suspect is in custody after FBI agents and military police responded Sunday to a 7-hour-long "barricade situation" at the U.S. Army's Fort Belvoir, Virginia, officials said.

The suspect was taken into custody shortly before 3 p.m. after officials initially responded to a home at 8 a.m., D.C. outlet WUSA9 reported.

Law enforcement rushed to Fort Belvoir after police scanner reports stated that a man with a gun was barricaded inside of a home on the base.

"Fort Belvoir law enforcement officials & the FBI Washington Field Office's National Capital Response Squad responded with local law enforcement partners to a barricade situation," the Twitter account for Fort Belvoir said Sunday morning.
