UPDATED 1/10/17 2:50PM

From nbc12:

Richmond police officers say an assault suspect has barricaded himself inside a residence in the 1600 block of 23rd Street.

Police initially got a call for an assault just before 11:30 a.m. Tuesday in the 2100 block of North 29th Street.



From a reader:

Tons of cops in swat gear round corner of v and north 23rd!

No idea what’s happening but they shut down block about two hrs ago and more and more people are rolling up.

Any word?
