Shamrock Shuffle re-routed as man threatens to jump from State Street bridge

| No Comments

Police were still on the scene at the State Street bridge Sunday morning for a man threatening to jump into the Chicago River. The action caused an emergency reroute in the Shamrock Shuffle.

According to Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Jose Estrada, the race was re-routed so the bridge is no longer part of the race route with runners using Grand Avenue crossing at Wabash instead of State Street.

The man was safely removed from the bridge about 8:30 a.m., Estrada said.
