LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - A barricade situation on Third Street is over, officials with the Lake Charles Police Department said.

Lake Charles police were issuing an arrest warrant, causing the barricade situation, according to Lt. Jeff Keenum.

It lasted a little over an hour before two people came out of the home. Keenum said the situation ended peacefully.

“People with guns on social media and we had an outstanding warrant for one of the young men in the residence," Keenum said. “He initially did not want to cooperate, but thank goodness he did and again, we could not be more pleased with how this came to a peaceful resolution.”

Third Street was blocked off from Johanna Street to Fourth Avenue.
