APG Emergency Services and other support agencies found a soldier dead after entering a home at Aberdeen Proving Ground during a barricade situation early Friday morning. 

At approximately 8 a.m. Thursday, authorities responded to a north side residence for a report of a man locking himself inside a dwelling on post.

A concerned family member of the man contacted emergency dispatch.

Officials say the area was isolated. As a precaution, authorities moved residents in the area to another location until the barricade was over.

The incident is currently under investigation.
