HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Police activity on the South Sam Houston Tollway at West Bellfort prompted most westbound lanes of the freeway to be shut down Thursday afternoon.

Those lanes have since been reopened.

Houston TranStar cameras captured a man at the ledge of the tollway just after 12 p.m. before it appears he jumped.

That man's condition is unknown.

ABC13 is working to get more information about the incident.
