Police units have converged on the Citibank office tower in Echo Park this morning and closed off nearby streets after a man reportedly threatened to commit suicide.

    I work at the building where he was positioned. He did *not* surrender. He was tackled by four LAFD fire fighters, subdued and then cuffed.
