Officers have closed a portion of Rolling Hills to traffic between Sheryl Avenue and Oaks Manor Drive.

We arrived on the scene at about 5:30 p.m. and an officer told us police weren’t overly concerned with the report, but were taking standard precautions by re-routing traffic.

We’ll update this story as more information becomes available.
