**UPDATE#6** as of 715am this morning, the suspect is in custody and Sheriffs Department officials are going through the home. No further info is available at this time. file photo

**UPDATE #5** at 119am I spoke to a deputy from the RivCo Sheriffs Department. He informed me that the Murrieta-Hemet SWAT team has been deployed to the location and that at this time they have no further information except that they hope to resolve this peacefully.

**UPDATE #4** 1215am 9-1-2016 - I just spoke to the sheriffs department representative, he confirmed no shots were fired. He could not confirm yes or no if a sound diversion device was used. He was a very nice Deputy who clearly has been working hard for hours to answer questions on scene. My advice to local residents is to stay at home, do not visit the scene and know the RicCo Sheriffs Department is working hard to resolve this.

**UPDATE #3** As of 1046pm, the Riverside Sheriffs Department has provided me the following information - 
"No update as soon as there is I will let you know Sir. We cannot control what information people put on social media. We have provided a statement and nothing has changed." 
They have told me that I will be updated as soon as further info is released - you all will be the first to know.
That said, whatever random info you might here on the web or via friends, may very well be not true.

**UPDATE #2** As of 850pm, I have heard directly from Riverside Sheriff Department and there has been no further changes to the situation. At this time there is an unidentified male subject in the home, alone. Sheriffs representatives have made no mention of shots fired. Folks from outside the local area are asked to stay away from the area for your safety and the effectiveness of the Riverside Sheriffs Department in resolving this matter.

**UPDATE** As of 6:15 sheriffs department has let us know that there are no changes at the scene.
