As of 9:40 p.m. the armed man inside his vehicle has surrendered to Livonia police.

The man, who was inside his Jeep Cherokee with a gun, was at first thought to be a threat to others. A short time later, police said the suspect was thought to be a threat to himself. 

The situation was resolved and Middle Belt was reopened.The man was talked down by police and is said to be receiving help.

Earlier this afternoon, the man's vehicle came to a stop at Five Mile and Schoolcraft. 

That intersection was closed down to police and Livonia police asked media helicopters to avoid the area.
