SWAT Situation on Wilmington Island

Posted: Updated:
CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

SWAT team outside a home on Hillary road late Sunday night. Neighbors say the situation began around 7 Sunday evening. 

A suicidal man barricaded himself in his home. Police say the man is armed.

"We're in the process now trying to calm the situation down. We've surrounded the house and we're trying to negotiate with him to come on out. At this point nobody has been hurt nobody else is in the house and we are taking all of that into consideration. The SWAT team is here and we have quite a few resources here to try and keep the neighborhood safe and to try and keep the gentlemen from hurting himself," said Public Information Officer of the Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Department Julian Miller.

We have a crew on the scene, as soon as we get more information we will make it available.
