ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. -  A standoff is still going on in unincorporated north St. Louis County Friday morning as negotiators are working to communicate with the barricaded gunman.

The standoff began around 8:15 a.m Thursday after US Marshals attempted to arrest a man in his forties who is wanted on felony charges. The man barricaded himself in a home in the 14800 block of Frais Drive.

Police said when the situation began, there was a woman in the home who is related to the suspect. She was able to get out of the home, and the suspect was then believed to be the only person inside. It is not clear if the suspect lives in the home where he barricaded himself.

Officers with the St. Louis County Police Department's Tactical Operations Unit along with officers from St. Charles County, St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, and trained negotiators worked throughout the day to get the suspect to come out.
