Walnut Creek police are investigating an apparent suicide Thursday afternoon after a woman in her late twenties jumped from the Nordstrom store at Broadway Plaza.
She was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
"Witnesses and the subsequent investigation revealed the subject was by herself when she intentionally jumped off the third-floor balcony," police stated in a Thursday evening news release. She landed near the sidewalk at South Broadway and Mount Diablo Boulevard.
The woman's identity was withheld pending notification by the Contra Costa County Coroner's Office, police reported.
Officers temporarily blocked traffic on Broadway Thursday afternoon to aid the investigation. Traffic flow was restored at 3:13 p.m. Thursday, police said.
The incident took place about 1:45 p.m. Thursday. The jump apparently was from a second-floor patio of the cafe at Nordstrom to the sidewalk below.
