Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - Memphis police responded to a situation where a man barricaded himself inside of a home in South Memphis.

About a dozen Memphis police officers escorted an obviously upset man out of a house on Barksdale Cove and Barksdale Street. The man was shouting shoot me, kill me, along with an obscenity.

He was taken into custody a little before 9:30 p.m.

Neighbors say they were evacuated from their home into the cold during the barricade situation.
