Just before 9 pm tonight several officers were working a scene on the West side. 

It happened on Central, just North of School st.

Initial reports are saying there is a suicidal subject with a hand injury near this location.

The man climbed up on top of his garage and was screaming at the police. He was saying he just wanted to be left alone. The man had experienced a tragedy recently. He told the police to get off his property.  And was screaming other things at the police as well.
