    DECATUR, Ga. – A SWAT team is currently in a standoff at an Atlanta-area hotel, according to the CBS affiliate in Atlanta. The standoff involved two adults and 11 children.

    DeKalb County Police Major Tonya Dedrick says the situation began around 2 a.m. in a room at the Rite4Us Inn & Suites just off I-20 in Decatur, Georgia. She says the man holed himself up inside the room after a domestic dispute with a woman. Dedrick says the children may be in danger.

    Investigators told FOX 5 some sort of dispute took place inside and that's when the woman dialed 911. The man refused to open the door when officers arrived, according to police.

    SWAT members moved in to surround the building in tactical gear as police blocked off the roadway around the Inn. Police said it's unclear if the man is armed, but he is communicating with authorities.

    I don't remember if I read it in one of the articles or heard it on television, but it was reported that all of the children are related.

    ETA: The man is the father of ten of the children. One child is his teenage brother.
