UPDATE: A domestic disturbance call in Green Bay on Thursday afternoon led to closed roads across multiple blocks and an investigation with S.W.A.T. and crisis negotiators.

The 1200 block of Day Street is a much calmer scene now than it was Thursday afternoon.

At around 11 a.m., Green Bay Police responded to a domestic disturbance involving a gun.

Captain Jeff Brester said this prompted S.W.A.T. and crisis negotiators to get involved.

No shots were fired. But police said this is a common response to this type of call, a call they don't get very often.

"Within the city, you know, I don't know how many S.W.A.T. calls we have a year," Brester said. "A dozen or so. It goes in streaks like everything else. You know, we don't see a lot for a while and then we get a couple calls."

Brester said after making a few announcements, two people exited the home and were taken into custody. Police aren't looking for anyone else right now.

Police are still completing interviews. No charges have been filed at this time.

ORIGINAL REPORTING: Green Bay Police are asking people to avoid the area of the 1200 block of Day Street because of a large police presence.

Police said in a news release they are attempting to reach someone inside of a home.

They said the incident involves one specific home.

If drivers see barricades, they are asked to find another route.
