Downtown Raleigh streets reopen as situation ends

Raleigh police said they do not plan on filing charges against a woman who threatened to harm herself and disrupted the evening commute.

Police blocked off three streets near the convention center for nearly four hours Monday afternoon.

The woman was on the ledge of a seven-story parking deck all that time.

Officers managed to convince her to come off the ledge and the situation ended peacefully.

Authorities said she will undergo a medical and mental health evaluation.
