TRUMBULL, Conn. — Police were involved in a standoff with a person barricaded in an apartment in Trumbull on Wednesday afternoon, police said.

The incident began before 2 p.m. Wednesday at the Royce of Trumbull off Old Town Road, near Fairchild Wheeler Magnet High School on the Bridgeport border, police said.

In a statement, Trumbull police said there was an ongoing police incident involving occupants of one apartment located within the Royce of Trumbull.

Police are being assisted by several local agencies and emergency response teams, including police from Bridgeport. Officers have a secure perimeter at the complex, police said.
