There is police activity on the southwest side of Great Falls.

Several police officers with weapons drawn are in the area near 4th Avenue SW and 5th Street SW.

We do not yet know the circumstances of the search.

People are advised to avoid the area if possible.

We have a reporter headed to the area and will post updates as we get more information.
