‘Barricade’ situation in Peninsula

Nov. 22. [Update 2 pm] Police from three different jurisdictions are still on the scene of a ‘barricade’ situation at a million-dollar home near America Cup and Flying Jib in The Peninsula. Cornelius Police would provide no other details, but residents were urged to not go near the area for the safety of the police officers on scene.

Neighbors said they were shocked by the turn of events, just before Thanksgiving, as Christmas decorations go up on street lights in The Peninsula. The holiday season is difficult for countless people for innumerable reasons. If you or someone you know needs help, Carolinas HealthCare Systems operates a crisis assistance line 24-7. The number is 704-444-2400.

More than two dozen police cars from Cornelius, Davidson and Huntersville remain on site, keeping residents, joggers, cyclists and work trucks at least two blocks away.
