Wichita's SWAT team has been called to a west Wichita neighborhood where a man is accused of threatening his parents with a gun. 

A couple living in the 11500 block of Valley Hi Drive contacted police Monday afternoon. The couple said their 33-year-old son had been drinking, pointed a gun at them and threatened them. 

Police believe the son is the only person inside the home. They are concerned because he has access to guns.

No one has been evacuated, but the intersection of Taft and 119th West was closed.  

Goddard Public Schools said the district would be unable to transport home children who live south of Maple between Shefford and 119th streets. Parents unable to pick up affected students were asked to contact their child's school.
