Colorado Springs Police are on the scene of a stand off situation in the 400 block of E Kiowa Street where a man was holding his wife and child at knife point. Police say that the woman was able to escape but the man may still be holding the child. Police are also saying that the man may have a psychological condition which they are cautiously dealing with.
Our crew on scene has heard the police using loud speakers to try and communicate with the man inside. It is unclear what started the situation but police received a call from the home at around 6:00am Saturday Morning. It is unknown at this time how much longer police will wait before they may have to enter the home by force or if negotiators will break ground and the man will end the stand off peacefully.
Police have roads closed close to the location of the stand-off for the safety of those in the area.
