Washtenaw County sheriff's deputies continue to negotiate with an armed man who has barricaded himself in a Superior Township home, officials said.

The home is on Meadow Drive near Gale Road between Vreeland and Cherry Hill in Superior Township, they said.

Deputies said residents of the neighborhood should remain in their homes and seek shelter in the basement, if possible. They also ask the public to avoid the area.

A Washtenaw County sheriffs vehicle, with other emergency personnel vehicles parked along the road, blocks off Gale between Vreeland and Cherry Hill in Superior Township near Ann Arbor on Wednesday, March 24, 2021. A man with a gun is inside a house, keeping police at bay. Other family members were evacuated.

Police were called a little after 4:30 a.m. by a family member in the home who said his son was suffering a mental health crisis, according to authorities. The caller also said the man had assaulted his parents, was armed with multiple weapons, was wearing a flak jacket and had multiple magazines strapped to his body.

Deputies safely evacuated family members from the home, but the man refused to come out, they said.
