PAYSON -- SWAT teams have surrounded a Payson home after a man barricaded himself inside.

Police received a call this evening of a domestic dispute. They say the man was upset over some financial problems.

When police arrived they found the man's family out of the house. The wife had minor injuries.

Officers have tried to talk to the man but has so far refused to talk. Police don't know if the man has a weapon, but are assuming he does as a precaution.

Authorities have blocked off streets and are now trying to contact the man.

The metro SWAT team of Utah County was called in as a precautionary measure. The SWAT team is using a robot with a camera to go in the house to try to make contact with the man.

We will have much more on this story tomorrow morning on KSL 5 News from 5:00 to 7:00.
