    A bit of an update on the Express-News story a couple minutes ago does not include the "shots fired" info. However....
    Police have blocked off McCullough and Main avenues between Park and Cypress to all traffic, and some of the streets are closed.

    VIA Transit announced on Twitter that bus routes along McCullough and Evergreen have been detoured because of the standoff.

    No one has been evacuated from the area, and nearby schools have been alerted about the situation.
