Police took a potentially suicidal man into custody in Northridge on Tuesday after he fired shots into the air.

Officers responded to a report of shots fired on the 10000 block of Reseda Avenue at about 10:10 a.m. An LAPD spokeswoman said a woman also called to report that her husband was suicidal.

When police arrived, the man pointed a gun at his head but eventually surrendered it and was taken into custody.

Police said no one was shot or injured in the incident. The suspect was taken in for a mental health evaluation.
