Police activity closes streets in Highland Park; people who live nearby asked to stay indoors

HIGHLAND PARK, Illinois (CBS) — A police situation in Highland Park made it difficult to make ends meet on Friday afternoon – just as kids were coming home from school.

Police wouldn’t say what was going on, but they closed off a section of St. Johns Avenue near Lincoln Avenue.

Officials said people living in the area should stay in their homes.

However, they also said the incident is limited to something going on in one house and that no one else is at risk.

North Shore School District 112 has informed parents that children living in the area may remain in school until it is clear.

As of 8:30 p.m., St. Johns Avenue remained closed from Lincoln Avenue to Wade Street.
