Atlanta police and SWAT team members were involved in a standoff Monday morning.

It happened at a home in the area of Baxter Road and Quaker Street. Streets in the immediate area were closed off.

Police said a man barricaded himself inside a house. However, family members told CBS46 photojournalist Mark Melvin that the man was not inside the home.

At one point a child was inside, but we're told that child is safe.

Melvin reported hearing explosions, gunfire and sirens. He said after the explosion, smoke billowed into the street.

We'll continue to monitor this situation and bring you new details as we get them.
