SWAT standoff ends in Castleberry Hill

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA - Residents are being allowed back into their homes after an early morning SWAT standoff in Castleberry Hill.

According to crews of the scene, the standoff began around 2:30 a.m. Thursday morning on Fair Street.

Atlanta Police SWAT Team evacuated neighbors and cordoned off the neighborhood after reports of a gunman barricaded in a nearby home came in from a neighbor.

Around 5 a.m., authorities stormed a loft just over the Shoe Lounge on Walker Street. They proceeded to search the loft but were unable to locate the suspect.

Neighbors told FOX 5 News, they were scared by the "flash bangs" used by SWAT authorities. But they are relieved that the standoff is over.

No word on the suspect or the cause of the call, at this time.
