I have been advised this morning by the Chicago Police Department that Sheridan Road is closed at the Evanston border until further notice. An armed man has barricaded himself in one of the apartment units in the condominium development located at the far northern end of Sheridan Road just south of Calvary Cemetery. Fortunately, he is by himself and has taken no hostages. Police negotiators are on the scene.
Until the situation is resolved, Sheridan Road will be closed between Howard Street and the Evanston border. I urge you to use Clark Street as an alternative route.
I will continue you to keep you updated as the situation develops.
