    SEATTLE -- The 520 bridge was closed in both directions Friday during rush hour due to an incident involving a person in distress, according to Washington State Patrol.

    The bridge has since reopened.

    Washington State Patrol says Washington State Department of Transportation responded to a disabled car in the eastbound lanes Friday afternoon. The person in the car would not cooperate so State Patrol was called.

    When State Patrol arrived, the person was still not cooperating and they noticed there was a shotgun in the person's car. All lanes were then shut down as law enforcement responded to the situation.

    SWAT and negotiators were called and the person was peacefully taken into custody, according to State Patrol.
