NEW BERN, CRAVEN COUNTY -

Police said a gas leak in New Bern shut down a business Monday morning.

The leak happened on Tatum Drive, near a Piggly Wiggly store, at about 7:30 a.m., according to investigators. The "New China" restaurant was closed as a result.

Parts of the area were blocked as crews from Piedmont Natural Gas worked to stop the leak. The repairs should be complete by lunchtime, officials said.
