Police are on the scene looking for a man wanted in connection with stealing a vehicle at gunpoint.

Officers responded Thursday night to a home near 55th Avenue and Camelback.

Phoenix police said a man, believed to be armed, entered a home uninvited in that area. Glendale police said they responded for an initial report of a possible domestic violence situation.

Phoenix and Glendale police units responded, including Phoenix's tactical team. Officials say those inside the home knew the suspect but did not want him there.

Authorities said those who live at the home were able to get out of the home, and they were currently looking for the suspect.

Police said they did not immediately have a description of the vehicle the suspect is believed to have stolen, but said it had been recovered.
