Barricade situation ends at Raleigh home

Monday, February 04, 2013

Police blocked streets near Oberlin Road in Raleigh Monday afternoon after they said a man tried to barricade himself inside a home.

Just after 4 p.m., officers went to the 2300 block of Grant Avenue to investigate a 911 call about a man possibly having emotional issues.

After talking with the man - who police suspected may have been armed - he was taken to the hospital for an evaluation shortly before 6:30 p.m.

Residents in the area who were told to evacuate were allowed to return home.

No one was hurt, and police said no charges will be filed.
