(Euclid) – The Euclid Police SWAT team was involved in a standoff off of Fox Avenue Thursday morning.
WTAM 1100’s Judy Thompson reported that police in camouflage were there with riot gear. She also saw K9 units, but wasn’t allowed close to the scene.
Judy says the standoff had been ongoing since at least 9 a.m. and a small crowd of residents has gathered beyond the police barricade.
