DENVER — Residents in the area of Federal Boulevard and West 2nd Avenue were evacuated Thursday afternoon as police dealt with a carjacking suspect apparently barricaded in his home.

Police surrounded a home near 3033 W. 2nd Ave. about 2 p.m. Nearby residents were contacted via an emergency phone call system. Traffic on Federal Boulevard was also interrupted.

About 45 minutes later, police arrested a suspect and cleared the house.

Neighbors were allowed to return home and Federal was reopened in both directions. Police remained on the scene while they waited for a search warrant to go back into the home.
