Conway Police are responding to a residence at Kensington and Sedgefield Drive in west Conway, where a man has reportedly barricaded himself inside of the home following threats to commit suicide.

LaTresha Woodruff, public information officer for the department, said she has been on the scene approximately a half hour and it is believed the man is alone inside of the home. 

The Log Cabin received unconfirmed reports that the department's SWAT team and bomb squad are at the home.

Officials did not explain why those two entities were at the location, but said it is possibly "procedure."
