NEW BERLIN, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A man is in custody after a standoff with New Berlin Police.

It happened near Calhoun and National, right across the street from Ronald Reagan Elementary School.

Police were called to a home around 9 a.m. on Monday for a custody dispute.

They pulled over the suspect's car and he refused to get out. After roughly 45 minutes, police were able to get him to surrender but they did have to shoot him with a non-lethal sponge round.

Police say the man wanted officers to kill him.

"We were in phone contact with him with a cell phone and he said he wanted us to shoot him. When he saw we had less lethal weapons out he wanted us to use lethal weapons and end his life," said Captain Mike Glider with the New Berlin Police Department.

An air soft pistol was found in the man's car. He is now in custody and will undergo a health evaluation.

The elementary school was put on a soft lock down for roughly 15 minutes. Classes have now resumed as normal.
