AMARILLO -

UPDATE: The man came out of the home peacefully at around 9:30 p.m.

Police say the neighbors who were asked to evacuate for their safety should be able to go home soon. 

 

 

EARLIER INFORMATION: A SWAT standoff is going on right now in North Amarillo.

It's near 12th and North Bonham about a block from Carver Elementary.

School's out so that's not an issue at the moment.

Police tell us a man barricaded himself inside a home in that area sometime around seven tonight when they went to interview him in regards to a family violence incident.

There was no response at the home but police believe he is inside and that he does have access to firearms.

 

 

Police at the moment are trying to establish contact with the man.

They're asking people to avoid the area near 12th between Bonham and Travis.
