VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - A barricade situation that began late Sunday night just off Shore Drive near N. Great Neck Road has ended.

SWAT crews and investigators closed off portions of West Great Neck and Shore Drive as they tried to safely resolve the situation without the man harming himself.

The situation ended just before noon.
