Salinas police have blocked traffic on Sherwood Drive because of an ongoing standoff with a male suspect who is holed up inside a home, a police commander said. “We believe he is armed,” Salinas police Cmdr. David Shaw said. The suspect appears to be by himself at a house at 45 Sherwood Drive and there are no hostages, Shaw said. Traffic on Sherwood has been halted between East Rossi and East Market streets since the standoff started at about 10:30 a.m., Shaw said. Negotiators have been using loudspeakers to try to convince the suspect to come out, Shaw said.
