Authorities in Orange County are involved in what appears to be a standoff with an alleged armed man outside of a Hobby Lobby store.
Calls about the incident, located in the 1900 block of 17th Street, came into the Santa Police Department just after 4 p.m.
Aerial footage from Sky5 showed the suspect in the parking lot pacing back and forth while authorities standby with guns drawn.
The store has been evacuated and all east and westbound lanes of traffic from Mabury Street to Tustin Avenue are currently closed. In a post to X, formerly known as Twitter, police urged everyone to avoid the area.
SWAT and crisis negotiators are on scene, according to Santa Ana police.
