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.
