TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Police say an armed man with multiple hostages is barricaded inside a Trenton home in a standoff that has lasted approximately 12 hours.

Trenton Police Lt. Stephen Varn said a man has been holed up in a house in South Trenton since late Friday afternoon with "multiple hostages."

Varn declined to give any details on the number of people being held, their ages or relationship to the armed man. He said shortly before 5 a.m. Saturday that negotiations continued between police and the man.

Earlier, authorities said police were called to the home mid-afternoon Friday on reports of a barricaded suspect.

Authorities say police entered the home and found the man brandishing a gun. The police retreated from the home and a perimeter was established around the home. A SWAT team was called in.

Homes on the surrounding block have been evacuated as a precaution.
