WAKEFIELD, Mass. — Massachusetts state police say nine suspects have been taken into custody following an hourslong standoff that prompted the partial closure of Interstate 95.

Police say the suspects include two people who were arrested earlier on Saturday.

The standoff shut down a portion of I-95 for much of the morning, causing major traffic problems during the Fourth of July holiday weekend.

Authorities said the southbound interstate reopened, but northbound lanes remain closed.
