PHOENIX -- Phoenix police have left the scene of a South Phoenix neighborhood where an armed man was thought to be barricaded inside a home.

Police spokesman Sgt. Steve Martos said a SWAT team searched the home near 7th Street and Roeser Road and did not find the man.

Police were initially called to the home for a report of domestic violence.

Martos said the man discharged a weapon while in the backyard of the home at some point and was believed to have barricaded himself inside with the weapon.

Martos said Wednesday night that police want to talk to the man but are not actively searching for him.
