SHAKER HEIGHTS, Ohio (WJW)- Police in Shaker Heights are asking residents to avoid an area due to police activity.

The police department tweeted just before noon on Wednesday, that the area of Larchmere Blvd. and Kemper Road will be closed to vehicle and foot traffic until further notice.

It was not immediately clear what prompted police to close down that area. FOX 8 reached out to the police department for answers. They did not respond. FOX 8 crews at the scene saw officers in armored vehicles, as seen in the video above, who appeared to be in a standoff situation. FOX 8 is working to learn more on this developing situation.
