We are told police were attempting to locate a suspect with a felony warrant at a home in the neighborhood. When they arrived at the house, they located the suspect, who saw police and ran back inside.

Police originally had information that the suspect had a handgun, and with that knowledge, called in the SWAT team. Right now the SWAT team and negotiators are trying to talk the suspect out.

Police are asking everyone to stay out of the area until the situation is over.
