Kansas Avenue reopens in NW DC (Updated)

UPDATE (4:30 p.m.): Kansas Ave. is open again. The incident ended with one arrest and no
injuries, according to Washington Post reporter Yamiche Alcindor.

ORIGINAL POST (12:44 p.m.): Washington Post staff writer Yamiche Alcindor reports of street closures in Washington due to a police situation. The closures are on Kansas Avenue from Gallatin to Ingraham streets.

District Department of Transportation spokesman John Lisle confirms the closures, but cannot confirm why.

According to Alcindor's report, individuals barricaded themselves inside a house, and neighbors say it's because they were served with an eviction notice but refused to leave. The situation began early this morning and by 9 a.m. police surrounded the house in the 5200 block of Kansas Avenue.
