The suspect had locked himself in his home. Despite police claims they could contact him, he has not yet surrendered. A woman is also present inside the house, although authorities have not designated her as a hostage. As SWAT teams, armored vehicles, and police dogs rolled into the neighborhood, some residents were told to leave their homes, while others were told to stay put.
