The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team is dispatched to a senior-citizen apartment complex on Vineville Avenue late Tuesday morning.
Lieutenant Sean DeFoe tells WGXA, the office received a call regarding a 74-year old man who refused to open his door to paramedics for a routine procedure. DeFoe says the man told paramedics he had barricaded himself inside the apartment.
The SWAT team, Macon-Bibb County Fire Department and EMS responded to the scene. DeFoe says negotiators talked the man out of his apartment and he was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
