Streets reopen in downtown Sacramento after person detained

The Sacramento Police Department said it assisted multiple federal agencies near I Street and 6th Street with "suspicious circumstances."

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The FBI has released more information after a man was detained in downtown Sacramento Thursday morning due to "suspicious circumstances."

It started just before 5 a.m. when a semi-cab was found parked on a ramp on federal property at 501 I Street.

The FBI says officers asked the driver to move the vehicle, but he refused, so Sacramento police stopped traffic on the surrounding roads.

The driver moved his semi-cab to a public road around 7 a.m. but still wouldn’t get out.

He then got out around 9 a.m. after crisis negotiators spoke with him and he was detained by U.S. Marshals.

The driver is being interviewed by the FBI. It’s unclear if he will be charged with anything.

Road Closures

  • 5th Street between H Street and I Street will remain closed
  • All other roadways are open
