CHICAGO (WLS) -- Dozens of people are in custody after an hours-long standoff with Chicago Police in the city's Edgewater neighborhood early Saturday morning.

The four-hour standoff ended peacefully around 6:30 a.m. when authorities pulled out people from inside the home one by one. Thirty-three people were taken into custody.
