WAUWATOSA - Police in Wauwatosa have taken two people into custody after a tactical situation there.

According to TODAY'S TMJ4's Tom Murray, investigated a home near the corner of North 121st and West Vliet Street.

A large police presence has blocked off streets in the area.  They have been carrying long rifles, making their way towards the home.

The situation reportedly began at about 9:30 a.m. Monday.

"The situation has been resolved," Lt. Chris Fox told reporters are the scene.  "The residents are accounted for and everybody is ok."

"We received a call at a home...a delivery person found the door open on the house, felt there were circumstances out of the ordinary and contacted us," he said.

The investigation is still underway, according to Fox.

"The caller relayed information that a robbery may have been in progress at that address," Fox later said. "In responding to the area, Wauwatosa police officers found nothing outwardly apparent, but contact was not able to be established with residents or occupants of the home. The area around the home was secured."

He added that contact was established with two guests at the home, who came out to talk with police. The situation has since been resolved, with no arrests made.

Authorities did not evacuate the neighborhood. Brookfield Police have assisted in the situation.
