The Hall County Sheriff's Office said a gunman has barricaded himself inside a home on Underwood Drive in Hall County on Friday, Feb. 12, 2021.

A man authorities say may be armed has barricaded himself inside a home in northwest Hall County, and deputies are on scene, according to the Hall County Sheriff's Office. No injuries have been reported.

The deputies are trying to get the man to come out of the home on Underwood Drive peacefully, a post on the sheriff's office Facebook says.

The sheriff's office responded to reports of a barricaded gunman at approximately 10:45 a.m. and evacuated nearby homes as a precaution, the post says. 

Further updates will be provided as they’re available.

The man in the home is not the same person who walked away from an inmate work detail this morning, the sheriff's office said.
