Authorities take a convicted felon into custody after refusing to exit home with two others Tuesday Evening.

Several Riverside County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a home near Avenue 50 and Balboa in Coachella to assist Child Protective Services with a welfare check.

However, deputies tell NBC Palm Springs, there was a black jeep where three people got out and ran inside including one who was recognized as a convicted felon. Deputies then searched the Jeep and found two firearms inside.

More deputies showed up on scene while authorities shut down a part of Balboa Street.

The investigation remains ongoing.
