The Detroit Police Department was on the scene of a barricaded gunman situation this morning on Detroit's west side.

With the help of their Crisis Intervention Team, they were able to defuse the situation.

The barricaded gunman situation took place on the 9000 block of Burt Rd near Dover Ave in Detroit.

During the barricade, Detroit police notified people in the area to shelter in place.
