Update, 9:35 p.m.: Gwinnett Police spokesman Cpl. Jake Smith told Norcross Patch that the SWAT team has entered the home and is looking for the suspect.

The domestic dispute starting approximately at 4:38 p.m. The woman in the dispute exited the home, but the man refused to leave, according to Smith.

Officers spent two hours trying to get him out, but he still wouldn't leave, so a SWAT call was activated. No one else is in the home with him, and he is believed to be unarmed.

Smith added that the man has outstanding warrants for other family violence incidents, including cruelty to children in the second degree and terroristic threats, but it's not confirmed if any of those incidents involved the woman in the latest dispute.
