Police have roped off a neighborhood with a mix of duplexes and single-family homes, as well as one house.

FBI agents are there with an armored truck, a trailer and other vehicles.


Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards says the case is being treated as a domestic terrorism case and the FBI is better equipped to handle that.
