Standoff overnight in SW Atlanta

ATLANTA -- Police and SWAT responded to a call on Baxter Road in southwest Atlanta Monday Morning.

Atlanta Police spokesperson Kim Jones says officers responded to a report of a family dispute involving a weapon.

Officers had already responded to the home once overnight for a dispute involving the same parties.

Samerah Dennis told police a handgun was pointed at her by her cousin, Antonio Hurst. They were apparently fighting over custody of Dennis' 14 year old son.

Hurst barricaded himself inside the home and SWAT was called to the scene. When they entered the house Hurst was not inside.

He is wanted on aggravated assault charges.
