SHARE Some Cary students cannot go home because of police standoff

(CARY) Students of a northwest suburban subdivision are being held at school as a police standoff continues with a man who barricaded himself in his house just after noon Wednesday.

Because the “incident in the Hillhurst subdivision … students who live in the Hillhurst neighborhood will be held at school until an administrator can be in contact with a parent or guardian,” a statement from Community High School District 155 in Cary said.

The ongoing incident involves a man who reportedly barricaded himself in a home in the 300 block of Hillhurst Drive, according to dispatch and media reports. No injuries have been reported.

“The police have determined that there is no immediate danger to students at school” and no lockdown is necessary, the D155 statement said.

But, “If not resolved by the 2:50 dismissal time,” students who live in the area will not be allowed to return home.

Police have blocked off an area from Decker Drive to Hillhurst Drive, according to dispatch reports.

Cary police did not immediately comment on the situation.
