Fourth Plain reopens after police activity in area




Police activity on Tuesday morning temporarily closed eastbound Fourth Plain Boulevard between Lincoln and Simpson avenues, just east of Fruit Valley Road.

The series of events started just before 8 a.m. when a suicidal man was standing on the railroad overpass, said Vancouver police spokeswoman Kim Kapp. Several units with Vancouver police, an AMR ambulance and a Vancouver Fire Department engine stood by to assist.

Police were able to work peacefully to get the man off the bridge, Kapp said.

Roads reopened before 9:30 a.m.
