TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson Police are revealing more about a S.W.A.T. stand-off in midtown.

Police have been near Glenn and Park throughout Thursday evening. Several streets are still closed.

Police say it was a six-year-old who brought a loaded handgun to school that led to the stand-off.

A teacher at Keeling Elementary found the gun in the child's backpack, though, police say there was no threat or lockdown at the school.

Now, investigators are trying to figure out how the gun got into the boy's possession.

The incident led officers to a home in the area of Park and Glenn.

Police say the boy's father has a felony warrant for parole violation.

Police tell us they have learned there are weapons in the home, and worked for several hours to try to get him to come out.

Police were able to send in a K-9, and take the man into custody, after the dog bit him.

Officers say they may charge the father with child abuse for the gun incident.
