A man is sitting in Sacramento County Jail Monday evening following a standoff with Folsom Police earlier that day.

Mark Weider, 22, reportedly locked himself inside a home with his son on Van Winkle Court shortly after 11 a.m. after an alleged domestic dispute with his wife.

The nearby Carl Sundahl Elementary school was briefly put on lock down as the situation unfolded.

Negotiators were finally able to get Weider to release the child after several hours. A SWAT team moved in to get Weider.

Neither Weider or the child were seriously hurt.
