Heavy police presence was seen near Memorial Park late Thursday morning as officers and SWAT surrounded a home in the area.

Authorities were at a home near the intersection of Tahoe and Ontario in Colorado Springs for a warrant execution.

Our crew on scene say they heard flash bangs and then heard an officer use a bullhorn to order the suspect out of the home.

Two people were detained. One, a woman, was released and taken to a friend's home. The other, a man, was arrested on a distribution warrant.

We are working to get more information.
