Standoff Underway In Modesto

Modesto police are negotiating with a person who is barricaded in a residence on Entrada Avenue in that city.

The house has been surrounded since shortly after 7:00 this morning, when several reports of what were thought to be gunshots brought the SWAT team to the area. A police spokesperson says there is some doubt now about whether or not the sounds were actually gunshots.

A nearby school has been allowed to open, but children are being kept inside as a precaution.
