Shots, explosion at siege situation in London

I'm watching Sky News feed into Fox, and it appears that the Scotland Yard and the London Police have cornered this guy in the New York sweatshirt (a 7/21 bomber) in London's Notting Hill neighborhood.

From AP:

Heavily armed police wearing gas masks and apparently using stun grenades raided a west London home Friday seeking suspects in the failed July 21 bombings targeting the capital's transit system, and a British television network reported one arrest.

Police were involved in a standoff with at least one man in an apartment, pointing assault weapons and pistols at the home, a witness said. Police wearing black balaclavas and body armor surrounded the building.

"They're asking him to leave the flat. They've been saying this for 25 minutes to half an hour. By the looks, they're getting a little fed up," a witness identified as Lisa Davis told Sky News.
She added that "it will be very hard for them to get in. Unless he cooperates it will get ugly."
