      WITTENBERG – An armed man was arrested following a standoff Tuesday afternoon in Shawano County.

      Multiple law enforcement agencies were called to the McDonald’s/Shell gas station in Wittenberg.

      Sheriff’s officials say a 28-year-old Gillett man armed with a handgun walked into the building and threatened law enforcement.

      Authorities say the suspect told everyone expect one worker to leave. That worker was eventually allowed to go.

      The suspect later surrendered to a negotiator and was arrested.

      No one was hurt.
