TUCKER, Ga. (AP) - Police in Atlanta’s suburbs have surrounded a motel where an attempted robbery suspect is believed to be inside.

DeKalb County police say the standoff began around 3 a.m. Monday at a Knights Inn in Tucker, just northeast of Atlanta.

DeKalb County police spokeswoman Shiera Campbell investigators believe a suspect inside is possibly armed. Campbell said the ordeal began with an attempt to rob a nearby Waffle House.

Police said a Special Weapons And Tactics (SWAT) team has been called to the scene.

WSB-TV reports that police are asking motorists to avoid the area near Lawrenceville Highway and Montreal Road.
