CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Westbound Interstate 74 was shut down for about two hours at north and south I-75 early Tuesday due to a SWAT situation, Cincinnati police confirm.

Officers said they responded to westbound I-74 near Spring Grove Avenue for a report of a disabled vehicle about 4:30 a.m.

Shortly after, they said they received a report of a person threatening to harm themselves in the area.

They responded to Spring Grove Avenue and Colerain Avenue, and SWAT negotiators were called to assist about 4:45 a.m., police confirm.

Spring Grove Avenue was blocked from Colerain Avenue to Ralston Avenue for about two hours, but it reopened about 6:10 a.m., police said.

A Cincinnati police spokeswoman said: “It was a potential jumper that ended in a peaceful resolution.”
