Homes Evacuated Amid Police Situation in Nashua Neighborhood

Multiple homes were evacuated Friday as authorities responded to a police situation in Nashua, New Hampshire.

The tense situation unfolded for hours. Several streets were sealed off and many residents were not allowed to go back home.

"It is very frustrating," said Shelly Serber. "Can't get home, we've got a 19-month-old baby that needs to eat, be changed."

The situation took place on Chestnut Street near downtown Nashua Friday afternoon and into the evening.

Residents say officers went door to door around 2 p.m. telling them to evacuate.

"I am frustrated because I can't get to my home to take my medication," said Priscilla Kinville.

Police surrounded a home at the intersection of Chestnut Street and Brook Street.

The SWAT team was brought in, but residents were told very little about what was happening in their neighborhood.

Around 8 p.m., loud bangs could be heard outside the home.

It's unclear if the noises were gunshots, tear gas or flash bangs to disorient the subject or subjects inside the home.

Police have not said what they're dealing with.
