CHICAGO (WLS) -- A police standoff in the city's Old Town neighborhood ended after 5.5 hours Sunday evening when a man and woman came out willingly just after 8 p.m., police said.

At about 2:30 p.m., a 911 call from a woman screaming for help sparked officers to respond to the 300-block of West Evergreen, police said.

SWAT teams arrived on the scene after that. No injuries were reported.

Nobody was taken into custody.

Earlier this month, on Oct. 9, SWAT teams responded to the same block after an offender barricaded himself in an apartment. The man allegedly held a 22-year-old woman against her will. A 42-year-old man was taken into custody in that case. It was not immediately clear if the incidents were related.
