Albany --  Late Sunday night, members of the Albany-Dougherty County SWAT team along with Albany police were called to the Regency Inn located at 911 East Oglethorpe Boulevard.

There, police say a man barricaded himself inside a room, and threatened to cause harm to himself and others at the motel. According to Albany Police, 49-year-old Ronald Holley barricaded himself inside a room at the motel.

Police said he claimed to have explosives, and he planned to also kill himself.  People staying at the motel were forced to evacuate from their rooms as a safety precaution.

Albany police first arrived on the scene around 8:30 PM. They were accompanied by members of the SWAT team, the Albany Fire Department, EMS, and Dougherty County Sheriff deputies.
