An armed man has barricaded himself inside a home in Clinton.

Missoula County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Jason Johnson says the unidentified 24 year-old man ordered his girlfriend and her parents out of the home after a domestic altercation after brandishing a handgun.

They called 9-1-1 and Missoula County sheriff’s deputies tried to communicate with the man inside the home, but he would not respond.

At that point, Johnson says the county’s special response team was called in, and a professional negotiator is attempting to get the man to surrender. The call for the SWAT team was put out a little after 5 Friday morning.

Johnson says no one has been injured, and negotiations  with the man are continuing.

UPDATE 8:45 a.m.

According to Missoula county Sheriff’s Department Information Officer Jason Johnson 24-year-old Pedro Carrillo has been arrested and no one was injured the standoff that lasted from 5:30 to 8:30. After an hour of conversation with sheriff’s negotiators Carrillo surrendered peacefully. Carrillo was transported to Missoula county jail and charged with partner or family member assault, assault with a weapon, unlawful restraint, and tampering with a communications device.
