No one was injured. The boy was taken to a Madison hospital for evaluation.

The incident began Friday about 9 p.m. when the teen barricaded himself in a house in the 600 block of Troon Court with two shotguns and a .22 caliber pistol, according to the St. Croix County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities did not return fire and negotiated for three hours with the boy, whom authorities said was suicidal. He surrendered at 12:30 a.m. Saturday.
