    SANTA BARBARA, Calif.—A masked man waving an American flag and holding a handgun Monday on a Highway 101 overpass shut down the freeway for hours just west of Santa Barbara.
    Police Sgt. Lorenzo Duarte says the man, wearing a ski mask and brown fatigues, was waving an American flag with one hand and a handgun in the other when officers arrived on the La Cumbre Avenue overpass just after 7:10 a.m.

    No shots were fired.

    About two hours into the siege, police officers using a bullhorn made contact with the man. But the sergeant said no one knows who the man is or what he wants.
