Police say a man is in custody after a brief standoff in Lincoln.

Police converged on an area Tuesday afternoon after several reports about a man with a handgun sitting on a curb. Police say the man surrendered about 20 minutes later.

Police say the man was not armed with a real gun but with a toy pistol. Police had no word on whether the man would be charged with a crime, but would probably have a mental evaluation.

Three area schools were locked down as a precaution during the incident.
