The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a man has barricaded himself inside a home Tuesday afternoon about three miles east of Dewar in Okmulgee County. 

OHP says it's assisting Henryetta Police on the incident which has law enforcement blocking Highway 266 closed a mile in each direction. 

Dewar schools confirmed to News On 6 that the school was on lockdown due to "an incident east of town," and the lockdown was a precaution on their part. 

This is a developing story and we will continue to update this story as we receive more information.
