The Town of Hamburg Police is in negotiations with a barricaded male in the area of Big Tree Road near Eaglecrest Drive.

The incident started briefly before midnight Sunday when the 42-year-old man's girlfriend reported to police he had access to a shotgun and was making suicidal threats.

Police responded to the call and noticed the armed man inside. Hamburg S.W.A.T. was called and negotiations have begun and are still occurring.

According to police, there is no one else in the residence. The street is barricaded and police are requesting any unnecessary traffic avoid the area.

Eyewitness News will have more information when it becomes available.
