NEW HAVEN – Police are investigating an untimely death on York Street, and closed roads in the vicinity for several hours.

Sources tell FOX61 News a person was declared dead at the scene about 10 a.m., and it is being investigated as an apparent suicide.

York Street was closed between Park Street and South Frontage Road, and traffic coming off the Rt. 34 connector was detoured. The road closures created some traffic issues, as the city filled up with people attending the Yale-Harvard game that started at noon.

The roads were reopened and the scene cleared about 1 p.m.
