GRANDVIEW, Mo. -- Grandview Police evacuated residents of a townhome complex early Sunday morning looking for suspects in a nearby shooting.
"At four a.m. me and my son heard a big boom that woke me up out of my sleep. A couple minutes later I heard the police. They were a building down from me yelling," said Tina, an area resident.
Police said there were people barricaded inside this building who refused to come out.
“We have been attempting to talk with them on a PA in the police car for a while, and haven't been getting any cooperation on that end of it," said Sergeant Dean Vanwinkle of the Grandview Police Department.
The swat team with gas masks on began exploding cans of smoke inside the home, but still no one came out.
Residents had been evacuated earlier, and came out in only what they were wearing including a mother who had to leave her baby inside the building.
"Our swat team made entry earlier. We knew there was a two month old baby inside that a mother had left inside when she was taken out earlier. We recovered baby, fine reunited with mom," said Vanwinkle.
The swat team eventually went inside to make sure no one was hiding. No one was found in the home and no arrests were made at the complex.
