According to preliminary details from police dispatch communications, the latest update at 1:10 PM revealed SWAT was requested to clear the premises at 1300 block of Passaic Avenue—located at the intersection of Bergen Ave & Grant St. The suspect was observed running inside this location, according to preliminary details.
