There aren’t many details yet but police are on the scene in National Harbor, MD across the street from the Gaylord National where CPAC is being held after an apparent suicide. A man reportedly fell from the upper levels of a parking garage.
An employee of a nearby business told RedState’s Caleb Howe that police say it will be at lest 2 hours before he will be able to open. The body of the man is still on the sidewalk.
There are at least 20 Prince George’s County police cars on the scene.

We don’t know if the man is connected with the conference taking place today through Saturday. Vice President Mike Pence is scheduled to speak later today.
We’ll update as details come in.
