A nearly two-hour barricade in a Mastic house ended with three people coming out with hands up Wednesday in front of police with guns and armored vehicles.

Charges against three men are pending after police raced to Moriches Avenue about 11:15 a.m., Suffolk police said.

Dozens of officers from the Seventh Precinct and the emergency services unit responded with their guns drawn and crouched behind vehicles for protection.

The standoff ended just before 1 p.m., without any shots fired, police said. At least three people, two men and a woman, were seen emerging from the house and were handcuffed.

No hostages were involved in the barricade situation and no one was injured, police said.

A police spokesman Wednesday night said other details, including the charges, were not immediately available.
