TAMPA - Hillsborough County Sheriff's Deputies closed off a building in Revere Landings at 1520 Fletcher Avenue late Wednesday night after being notified that an armed man had barricaded himself in one of the apartments.

Many residents were unable to get home late Wednesday, as deputies sealed off the area and tried to coax the man out.

No information about the man's identity were available at press time.
