BISMARCK, N.D. - UPDATE: A welfare check Monday afternoon in the area of Manitoba Lane from Century to Montreal resulted in a bomb squad call.

Bismarck Police said a 43-year-old man was locked in the basement of a house when the family called police because they were worried.

When officers arrived there was a sign in front of the door staying it was booby trapped; that's when officers called in a bomb squad.

Officers said the man came out of the room by himself and there were no bombs or booby traps in the home.

He was taken for treatment on a self-inflicted injury and sent to get a psychiatric evaluation.


ORIGINAL STORY: The Bismarck Police Department came out at around 1:50 p.m. Monday afternoon for a medical assist on Manitoba Lane and Century Avenue in North Bismarck.

West Dakota SWAT Team and Bismarck PD were called to the scene.

Bismarck police say there was possible suspicion of weapons, self-harm and harm to responding units so they set up a perimeter.

“Potential weapons involved that's the reason we're taking the extra precaution. We received information we may be at risk so that’s why we have, we got extra resources,” said Mark Buschena, Bismarck Police Department.

The police department made contact with the person in the home.

The suspect has been injured and is on the way to the hospital. Once the house is secure they'll open up the streets for the public.
