PHOENIX -- A Phoenix SWAT team stormed a home near Belleview Street and 59th Avenue Wednesday night, looking for drugs and guns.

Officers from the Department of Public Safety and Phoenix Police Department served a search warrant after receiving a tip about illegal activities inside the home.

"We received a call of subjects with automatic weapons and handguns loading bundles inside the house," said Phoenix police Sgt. Louis Bentivegna.

The SWAT team fired tear gas into the home after the suspects refused to come out.

Seven undocumented people were taken into custody for questioning. One suspect is still on the loose.

There is no word yet on whether police found any guns or drugs inside the home.
