A section of Palm Street in downtown San Luis Obispo was closed for about an hour Tuesday morning while police investigated an apparent suicide.

It happened at approximately 9:15 a.m. in the 900 block of Palm Street.

Police say officers, the Community Action Team, and the city's Mobile Crisis Unit responded to the scene after receiving reports that someone was experiencing a mental health crisis.

"Unfortunately, shortly after contact was made, the community member took their own life," police said in a press release.

The investigation is being turned over to the county coroner's office, and police said they would not be releasing any further information at this time.
