ASHBURN, GA (WALB) -

Many questions surround a SWAT standoff in Ashburn that ended overnight Tuesday as an apparent false alarm.

Police tell us they were called to a home on East College Avenue around 11:30 Monday night after someone called 911 reporting a double homicide and a hostage.

A multi-county task force SWAT team was called in along with the Georgia State Patrol.

They surrounded the home and around 2 a.m. gave the all clear.

No one was hurt.

Nora Briones lives with her brother and parents a few doors down on East College Avenue.

She says she and her family have lived in their home for 13 years and were frightened. 

"We was afraid because nothing like that has happened before. That was the first thing like that that happened since we've been living here," explained Briones. 

Briones said she and her family are going to be careful.

"I guess if something happens again like that we're going to find another place to live," said Briones.

Police are not releasing many details at this time about what really happened inside the home. 

Police wouldn't say if anyone was in custody and it's not clear who made the 911 call.

We will continue to follow this story for updates.
