SEATTLE — An entire bridge was closed down in Seattle during rush hour Friday after someone reportedly had a shotgun in a disabled vehicle and was not cooperating with authorities.
According to KOMO in Seattle , the 520 bridge closed in both directions Friday afternoon.
They say the Washington State Department of Transportation responded to a disabled car in the eastbound lanes and the person wouldn't cooperate.

SWAT and negotiators responded, and the subject was peacefully taken into custody.
