      Apparent suicide shuts down streets near Destiny USA

      Police investigate the scene on Park Street early Thursday afternoon

      Traffic is blocked off near Destiny USA as police investigate a report of a body found in the road.

      Syracuse Police say they believe a person jumped from an elevated portion of the Interstate 81 highway near the mall in an apparent suicide.

      While officers investigated the incident, have closed off the following streets:

      - Park Street northbound at the I-81 exit ramp- I-81 north exit at Park Street- The intersection of Alliance Bank Parkway and Park Street- The exit from Destiny USA to Park Street

      The streets were reopened at 1:45 p.m.

      CNY Central normally has a policy of not reporting on suicides, but in this case we felt the street closures warranted a story.
