The Walnut Creek Police are investigating an apparent suicide at Nordstrom in Broadway Plaza.
We’re hearing the person possibly jumped from the roof, or a balcony on the building. One witness said there is blood all over and the alleged jumper’s body is partially in the bushes.
The Walnut Creek Police are asking people to avoid southbound Broadway at Cypress Street, and also Duncan street near Broadway/Mt. Diablo Blvd. for the next hour while they investigate.
