One man is dead after a shooting on the western edge of the National Mall.

Authorities received multiple calls reporting a shooting in the area of the Mall shortly before 8 a.m. Sunday.

News4's Derrick Ward reported seeing a number of police and police vehicles at the intersection of Ohio and Independence Avenues near the Lincoln Memorial shortly before 9 a.m. 23rd Street and Ohio Drive were closed most of the morning, but re-opened at around noon.

At this time, there is no word of the nature of the shooting. D.C. police continue to investigate the crime and say that one of the things they are investigating is an apparent suicide. No foul play is suspected.

Police have not released the man's identity.
