Law enforcement was on the scene of a standoff in Albertville Sunday.

The Wright County Sheriff's Office received a report of a suicidal man around 1:30 a.m. The caller reported the man may have been on his way to a home in Albertville.

When deputies arrived to the home, located on County Road 37 near 64th Street, they found the man’s car in the driveway. Deputies saw there was damage done to the overhead garage door.

The resident of the home was not there at the time, according to the sheriff's office.

Deputies tried to make contact with the man inside but have been unsuccessful.

The man is believed to be armed, and precautions are being used during the "ongoing criminal investigation," according to the sheriff's office.

Additional information has not been released at this time.
