Metro Police are on the scene of a barricade situation.

It all started just before 9:00 p.m. Thursday, and as of 4:15 a.m. was still going on.

SWAT team units were called to Cambridge and Dumont, near Desert Inn and Maryland Parkway. Police say they initially got a call about gunshots in the area, when they arrived, they say a potentially armed man barricaded himself in his home.

Investigators are not sure if anyone else is inside. They evacuated the neighborhood as a precaution.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
