ALGIERS, LA (WVUE) -

New Orleans police are investigating an incident that required the SWAT Team to be called to an area in Algiers.

Officers say a man barricaded himself inside of a residence in the 2700 block of Ramsey Dr. sometime early Thursday afternoon. It is unclear what led to the incident. He was eventually taken into custody.

About a dozen officers, their weapons drawn, were seen running into a home in the block, according to NOLA.com. 

Minutes later, officers were seen escorting a person out of the home. Members of the SWAT team had assembled at the corner of Hudson Place and MacArthur Boulevard.

By 1:45 p.m., they were removing gear.
