Deputies are attempting to safely reach those barricaded inside a home near Leon Springs.

Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar said deputies responded to a home in the 9200 block of Saddle Trail to execute a mental health warrant and perform a welfare check. When deputies arrived, a man fired and struck their tactical shield. Deputies retreated back and are now trying to get back into communication with the man inside the home.

Salazar said the man is in his 60s and it's believed a woman is inside the home as well.
