WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- A large law enforcement presence lined along Transou Road in Winston-Salem Wednesday night.

Law enforcement has been on the scene for about four hours. A portion of Transou Road is currently blocked.

According to Forsyth County Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Brad Stanley, deputies went to a home in the area to serve a domestic violence protective order Wednesday evening. Part of the order was to seize firearms.

A man at the home would not cooperate, went back inside and refused to come out. A woman was taken from the area to safety, Stanley said.

Winston-Salem police responded and took over the scene, as the home is inside the city limits.

Winston-Salem police have not released any information on the incident. It is unclear if the man is barricaded in a home on Transou Road or a side street.

FOX8 has a crew at the scene working to gather additional information.
