    Police continue to search for a suspect in a shooting and barricade situation in South Jersey.

    At least one person was shot near the intersection of Broad and Warren streets in Beverly, Burlington County around 6:45 p.m. on Saturday, according to reports.

    Three men were taken into custody after police arrived, but authorities suspected another man barricaded himself inside the home with a rifle.

    Local officials called in the SWAT team, who used a robot and then a tactile vehicle to ram in the house's front door. The high-tech equipment did not detect anyone in the home however.

    Police continue to search for the remaining suspect. They have not yet released a description.
