Previous Story:

Sioux Falls Police are on the scene of possible standoff on the east side of town. We believe Police were called to a home in the area of 3rd and Lewis around 2:30 Friday morning.

Police do have several streets in this area blocked off. We also know at least one mobile command post is in the area.

We do not know why police were first called to the area, or what house in the area they are surrounding.

We are live on the scene and we will bring you any new details as soon as we have them.
