When CBPD arrived, officers reportedly saw a man with a gun before disappearing out of view.

As of Monday mid-morning, police says the man has refused to come out and to submit to law enforcement commands.

CBPD says there are no hostages.

Officers are still on the active scene. They’ve been on the scene for more than 17 hours.

Glenn Ave. is currently closed for traffic. Additionally, portions of Blanche Ave. and Kenneth Ave. are closed to traffic.

A neighbor says he was surprised to wake up to the scene Monday morning.

“I see that guy all the time,” neighbor Jim Sattie said. “He seemed like a friendly guy. A family man. He was out there with his wife and kids the other day working on the truck. Looked like he was having a great time, so I don’t know what’s up.”

Residents and visitors are urged to stay away from the area until the incident is resolved.
