LEON HARRIS, CNN ANCHOR: We want to update you now on this live story that we're covering that's breaking here in Atlanta. We showed you moments ago this crane here. This is a 14 story tall crane that's at a construction site just north of downtown Atlanta. And there is a man who has barricaded himself inside that compartment. He has just covered up the windows within the last few minutes or so.

It is believed that he has a gun. He has been negotiating or he had been talking with police negotiators, we understand, as well off and on throughout the morning. And they had, at one point, a police officer who was also climbing this crane to reach this man.

No reasons right now known for this barricading at this particular point and this particular place, but we'll keep our eye on this story and update you throughout the morning.
