The DeKalb County Police Department says its SWAT unit is at a SWAT standoff with someone barricaded inside a home at 2917 Meadowview Drive in greater Decatur.

As a result, roads in the area have been closed.

“Access to Meadowview Drive at Clifton Church Road and Parker Ranch Road have been shut down.  This also affects secondary roads in the neighborhood,” the Police Department said. “Parents with children attending schools in the area are asked to pick students up at the schools, as schools buses will not be able to travel through the surrounding streets.”

This story will be updated when more information becomes available.
