There's a police stand-off at a private home with a man who is apparently armed. State police have apparently surrounded the house and are trying to negotiate with the man. It is unclear if there are any hostages, according to a brief report filed by WCAX. Route 7 is closed south of the New Haven Junction on Route 7, where it intersects with Route 17 and at Town Hall Road. Traffic is being detoured around that section of Route 7. A dozen police cars are reportedly on the scene.
