(NECN: Jen Eagan, Woburn, Mass.) - Police spent several hours at a home in Woburn, Mass. on Wednesday. It started with a call for a barricaded subject, and, before it was over, the bomb squad was called in.

It was quite a scene at 79 Elm Street.

Woburn Police were first called to do a well-being check on a 24-year-old who is living at the home.

We're told the man's parents made the call. The 24-year-old, whose name has not been released, was taken into custody. That was shortly after 12:30 Wednesday, but the scene remained active for hours because police found potentially explosive material inside the home. Around 3 p.m., police began bringing out bags of evidence.

There's an elementary school right across the street from where all of this happened. The school was put on lock down and the students were released out the back door.

Jennifer Eagan has more details.
