Officers found the 43-year-old man and provided first aid, before taking him to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Olinger said.

The woman, however, barricaded herself in the home, and Montgomery County Regional SWAT was called to the scene.

Olinger said that there is no reason to believe anyone is in the residence and that SWAT would be taking control of the scene to hopefully bring the situation to a peaceful end.
