Roads reopened in downtown Las Vegas after police activity

Roads have reopened after police activity in downtown Las Vegas early Tuesday afternoon.

Officers went to the 300 block of Casino Center Boulevard, near Lewis Avenue, and were trying to convince a man to come down from the top floor of a parking garage, Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman Laura Meltzer said. Officers took him into custody at 2:12 p.m., she later said.

Traffic was temporarily shut down on Casino Center and Lewis, Meltzer said. The roads are now open.
