Military police have resolved a standoff at a home on Wheeler Army Airfield Saturday afternoon.

A 25th Infantry Division soldier barricaded himself at about 1 p.m. Saturday in his home on Pikake Street at Wheeler, Army spokesman Dennis Drake said.

Police had surrounded the home, Drake said.

At about 3:30 p.m. Army law enforcement officials took the soldier into custody.

As a precaution, officials from the Army and Island Palm Communities relocated residents in the surrounding streets in the Wiliwili Housing area to an area community center, Drake said.

The Army is investigating the incident.

It is unclear if the soldier was armed.
