COVENTRY, R.I. (AP) - A police standoff with a Coventry man barricaded inside his home is in its second day.

Police say officers initially responded to the home at about 9 a.m. Wednesday for reports of a domestic disturbance.

The man refused to come out of the home so a SWAT team and negotiators were called to the scene.

The standoff was still on progress on Thursday morning even after the electricity to the house was turned off.

Some nearby homes were evacuated out of an abundance of caution. One neighbor said he was told by police that the man in the home is armed and dangerous. His name has not been released.
