There were some tense hours in a Montgomery County neighborhood Sunday morning.

A standoff began at 10:30 a.m. Sunday at a home on South Lane, off Fruitville Road, in Limerick Township. More than a dozen residents had to be evacuated.

Police said a man was pouring something from a gas can -- inside and outside the house --  and he ended up stabbing himself with a broken mirror.

The man was taken to the hospital.
