Senior Sergeant Peter Van de Wetering said two officers were called to Albert St in Hamilton East where the man, 19, was seen with a BB gun.
The street was cordoned off and the armed offenders squad called in. The man had threatened to hurt himself.
Van de Wetering said the incident ended "peacefully" after a call to the man was made by an officer and he gave himself up.
