    Gunman inside Apartment/police/swat team on premises


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Sonja Andersen is a photographer who also lives in the Reserve at Mayfaire, an apartment complex where an eleven hour stand-off took place Tuesday in Wilmington, North Carolina.

    Andersen, who captured these images at the scene said, "Residents were on edge, as there were several misleading reports of a possible bomb." The stand-off ended in the apprehension of an off-duty police officer who is now in custody. For more on this story visit our affiliate WECT.

    Right now, at 10:12 pm, there is a crisis situation in Wilmington NC. A resident has weapons, and the swat team/police are still outside the apartment.This started supposedly around 11 a.m.? but I was not aware of it until around 5 pm. Gunshots were supposedly fired several times, and there is a possible hostage inside. Other people report that it is a local police officer who resides in the apartments, but this has not been confirmed via myself. Many residents were not allowed to park as usual in front of their apartments, they ended up parking far away and being either escorted by police to their homes, or just walking carefully in.
