News Release
Update: Special Emergency Reaction Team Activation - 09/15/20

As the situation on the 800 block of Southwest Hume Street developed and more information was learned, it was apparent the circumstances had changed and therefore officers left the area.

Based on all available information, there is no risk to the community and investigators will follow up at a later time.


The Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT) and Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT) are responding to the area of the 800 block of Southwest Hume Street to assist Central Precinct officers with a reportedly armed and barricaded person.

No additional information is available at this time.

Southwest Hume Street is closed from Southwest 6th Avenue to Southwest 9th Avenue.

An updated news release or social media post will be pushed out as investigators learn more. There is not an estimated time on when that update will be provided.
