Many officers from Philadelphia and Lower Merion police are outside a City Avenue apartment building Wednesday afternoon, and the street has been shut down in both directions there.
About 3 p.m., City Avenue closed between Conshohocken State Road and Bala Avenue, the stretch that goes over the Cynwyd Line train tracks at the Bala station. Officers have surrounded a building on the Philadelphia side of the street.
Police have not announced the nature of the incident, though one officer told people waiting for a bus near the closure that a man was barricaded inside the building and that the closure could last hours.
Check back with Patch for updates on the incident and the status of City Avenue in that area.
