A SWAT team was called to a residence in suburban Boca Raton Thursday morning after a process server ran into difficulties.

The process server had papers to deliver to a person at a home near SW 3rd Street and Lyons Road.

As the process server approached the residence he heard what he thought was a gunshot.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office was notified and they called in a SWAT team.

The sheriff's office later said a person had committed suicide.

The activity was confined to the residence. However, Hammock Pointe Elementary School at 8400 SW 8th Street was on lockdown as a precaution.
