JACKSON, Tenn. — The Jackson Police Department released an update on Monday’s barricade situation.
Around 7:30 p.m., our crew arrived at East Chester Street, near Altamont Drive, to find a two-car police blockade of the road.
It was later revealed that the road was temporarily blocked due to a barricade situation that was further east down East Chester, near Hillcrest Circle Drive.
The Jackson Police Department says that officers were attempting to serve a search warrant on a home, resulting in the barricade.
