LEE COUNTY, Fla.- A Buckingham man is safe Thursday, after an overnight standoff.

Lee County deputies tell us 27-year-old Brandon Helms entered a home on Skates Circle, just after midnight, and some type of fight broke out. The family inside was able to leave, but deputies say that's when Helms barricaded himself inside.

Just after two o'clock they were able to get Helms to leave the house. The standoff did end peacefully.

Helms was taken into custody, but then released. Right now, Helms is not facing any charges.
