For those who saw a bunch of police cars and command vehicles near North 49th and North Winnifred Streets in Ruston this afternoon: Ruston Police, along with assistance from Tacoma Police SWAT, were responding to a barricaded suicidal person, police officials said.

The man is known to local law enforcement and neighbors for having done this in the past, police spokesman Mark Fulghum said.

At 5 p.m., a negotiator was still trying to coax the man out.
