Police are working to get a suicidal man out of a home in Novi Thursday morning.

The home is located on Venice and Cidermill, near 10 Mile and Beck.

Police say the 58-year-old man barricaded himself in a bedroom. The family indicated to police that there are weapons in the bedroom, but it's not clear if the man is armed.

Although police don't believe he is a threat to neighbors, they are asking for neighbors to stay inside their homes and to avoid the neighborhood until they resolve the incident. The special response team and police negotiators are hoping to get the man safely outside the home without having to go in.
