Two people are in custody after a situation at a home in the Lavalette area of Wayne County, West Virginia State Police said.

It happened in the 500 block of Oakmont Road when a man barricaded himself inside the home.

Because of a warrant against a man there, troopers believed he could be armed and called for backup.

A Special Response Team (SRT) and troopers from the neighboring counties of Cabell and Lincoln provided assistance.

The man came out of the house on his own, and a woman in the home also had active warrants against her. Both were taken to the Western Regional Jail.

No names have been released yet. Keep checking the WSAZ app for the latest information.
