Tipster Tyler C. writes that there's a "crazy standoff" going down at Geary & Collins, and witnesses have taken to Twitter to report what they're seeing:

Avoid the area of Collins St. between Geary Blvd. and Anza St., due to #SFPD activity. Thank you.— San Francisco DEM (@SF_emergency) April 10, 2016
Just took video riding past Geary and Collins. SFPD are in position around the block and armed. pic.twitter.com/scaFqpGc7x— A Flaming Homosexual (@onebrightlight) April 11, 2016
We've contacted SFPD for details on what might be going on, but for now, avoid the area if you can.
Update, 4/11: A Reddit thread indicates that the police action was in response to an armed man who may have taken his own life.
