The suspect, in his late 30s, is still possibly inside of the house, according to deputies.
The 17-year-old took the other two kids out of the residence, and all of them are uninjured.
BCSO says negotiators are still working to get in contact with the man, who is believed to be inside of the home, and are working to get him to come outside. The man is possibly the father of the three children.
“If he’s alive in the house, I would urge him to give himself up," Salazar said. “There’s a possibility he may not even be in the house. Our next move is we continue to wait."
The man is armed with at least one handgun and has a history of family violence, according to Salazar.
Sheriff’s deputies will remain at the scene for quite some time throughout the night. Residents are encouraged to be on alert and should lock their doors and call the sheriff’s office if they see anything suspicious.
