Independence Avenue is closed at Benton Boulevard this morning.
Sources say that a rolling gun battle that occurred overnight in the area is the cause as one of the bullets struck a gas meter outside a building on the north side of Independence Avenue.
The gas leak has been repaired however the entire area remains taped off. Commuters are urged to find an alternate route.
Police indicate that one person is in custody at this time.
At least 21 shell casings were marked by orange cones on Benton Blvd.
As we get more details we will make them available.
