It happened near Sage Drive.  That is off of E Riverside area.

We were told by a source, the man did not actually barricade himself, but only simply refused to answer the door for the police over a warrant. And now police are saying he barricaded himself. So it is unknown if the suspect just simply did not answer the door for police, or if the man really did barricade himself.

Several officers are out with their rifles, a snip, and numerous police. This is a very dangerous situation and we recommend you avoiding the area.
