GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The immediate area around Franklin Street and Henry Avenue SE was barricaded Tuesday afternoon during a police standoff with several suspects.

While serving an arrest warrant to an as-yet unidentified male suspect, Grand Rapids Police say it turned into a “standoff situation” with multiple people inside the house.

Members of the FBI and other law enforcement officers were called into the area, but the circumstances surrounding the standoff, including the exact location and the identity of the suspects, were not available.  One person is currently in custody.

FOX 17 has a crew at the scene.  The situation was still active as of 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.
