Crime scene tape blocked off much of the street traffic around the Transit Center and the Spectrum Center.

The CityLYNX Gold Line stopped operating and the Transit Center was temporarily closed due to all of the police activity. Riders were asked to go to Fourth and Brevard streets. CATS staff are on the scene to assist riders.
