ABC 33/40 is on the way to the scene of a standoff situation in Jefferson County.

According to Chief Deputy, Randy Christian, it began as a pursuit of a robbery suspect by Mountain Brook Police.  The pursuit ended in the Forestdale area.  That's where the unidentified suspect got out the vehicle and fled on foot.  He went into a house on the 4000 block of Tall Tree Lane in Adamsville.

This is believed to be the suspect's house or that of a family member.  The suspect is armed with a handgun.  SWAT has been called out.
