(WUSA9) -- Tuesday, Alexandria Police closed down some intersections near Thursday's homicide scene on Ridge Road Drive for evidence searches. According to police, the closures "are to preserve the evidence scene for a search by police academy recruits later in the day, not for a search for the suspect."
Police say the intersections are closed:
•Ridge Road Drive and Braddock Road -- no northbound traffic on Ridge Road Drive
•Circle Terrance and Central Avenue -- no southbound traffic on Central Ave and no northbound on Circle Terrace
•Farm Road and Virginia Avenue -- no southbound traffic on Farm Road
•Ridge Road Drive and Virginia Avenue -- no southbound traffic on Ridge Road Drive
Police tell us residents can leave and enter, but non-residents should avoid the area. Additionally, officers will verify addresses before allowing residents entry.
The closures and restrictions are expected to end at 4 p.m.
