A man who was described as suicidal was taken into custody Tuesday at the Leavenworth Wal-Mart store after he allegedly threatened to harm himself and police, a police spokesman said.

The man reportedly called the Leavenworth Police Department at 2:18 p.m. and made the threats over the phone while he was at the Subway restaurant inside the Wal-Mart store.

Officers responded. After a brief discussion with officers, the man surrendered, according to Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.

Officers were still on the scene when Nicodemus was interviewed for the story. The deputy chief did not know if the man had been in possession of a weapon.

Nicodemus said he did not know if the man would be taken to the Leavenworth County Jail or to another facility for mental health treatment.
