Staff reports

Three Donelson area schools are on lockdown Thursday afternoon as Metro Police work to end a standoff in a nearby neighborhood.

An armed man apparently barricaded himself in his home at 2824 Blue Brick Drive, off Stewarts Ferry Pike near Lebanon Road, just after 11 a.m.

Donelson Middle and Hickman Elementary schools are nearby and Tennessee School for the Blind is across the street. All three schools are on lockdown as a precaution.

Metro’s SWAT team and a hostage negotiator have been called to the scene.

Waiting for anything, even an update that says almost word for word what is here, but with the added word "continues" to let us know you're still watching this for us. Perhaps a word on why the officers are still there.
