The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is asking residents to avoid the area near the intersection of Sheridan Boulevard and Interstate 76 amid heavy police activity.
While a tweet from the sheriff’s department did not say why police were responding to the 5300 block of Sheridan Boulevard, it noted both Sheridan and southbound I-76 are temporarily closed.
