An hours-long barricade situation in the western part of Baltimore County was resolved when a protective order was served with no injuries or further incidents, police said Tuesday afternoon.
Police announced the protective order served at 12:45 p.m. and said roadways would be opening up as units dispersed.
Baltimore County Police on Tuesday said there was “no known threat” in a barricade situation unfolding in the Woodlawn-Lochearn area that started just after 7 a.m.
Police were on scene in the 2700 block of Gwynnmore Avenue and the 3300 block of Kelox Road, near Powhatan Elementary School, for a person who refuses to be served a protective order.
SWAT units were on scene because police called in a barricade situation, explained spokeswoman officer Jennifer Peach. By calling in the SWAT units, regular patrol officers are able to respond to other calls rather than spend their time “sitting on a house.”
Units had been on scene since about 7:10 a.m., Peach said.
Peach said there was nobody else in the house with the person in question and was not aware of neighbors being put on lock down while the situation unfolded.
