UPDATE: The police operation is over and Hudson Street has reopened to traffic, says IPD. Tompkins County officials had said Hudson Street was closed on Ithaca’s South Hill from Hillview to Grandview for a police operation. The South Hill School will be dismissed from the back of the building.
According to WICB, police and K-9 units are surrounding a nearby house, and the school is on lockdown.
“Please avoid the area,” said City of Ithaca mayor Svante Myrick in a Facebook post.
