9:00 PM UPDATE: The situation in Grand Forks continues.
According to Grand Forks Police Lieutenant Derik Zimmel, the scene is static. There is an individual who has barricaded himself in a residence in Grand Forks.
"We had some conflicting reports regarding this individual," Zimmel says. "He could be armed, there is a possibility he was involved in a pretty significant incident earlier today."
The incident is currently contained to a single house, but Zimmel says that could change.
"This is still a dangerous situation," he says. SWAT negotiators are currently on scene, in an attempt to bring the event to end peacefully.

There is no apparent danger to the general public at this time, he says.
