The Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office and SWAT team is in talks with a man, holed up in a house near Carencro.
Authorities responded to a home on Bergeron Loop and Hector Connely Road near I-49. A section of road between Rue Coupe Civique and Beau Bassin Road is blocked by law enforcement. They're asking residents to avoid traveling in that area.
The man is alone inside the home. He's allegedly experiencing marital problems and may try to hurt himself. The Sheriff's Office believes he may have weapons inside the residence. No one else is inside the home with the man.
The Special Reaction Team is working to resolve the situation. KATC is at the scene. We'll have more details as they become available.
