ABILENE, Texas — Abilene police officers spent a tense 40 minutes Tuesday night trying to talk a man out of jumping off a highway overpass.

Lt. Mike Collins said someone called 911 around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, saying a 23-year-old Hispanic man had threatened to "take his phone and go kill himself." Officers responded to the caller at the intersection of North First Street and Pioneer Drive, where they received a description of the man, who had left the scene.
