Scene cleared after suspicious package prompts evacuation of building that houses DC radio station

- D.C. police say a report of a suspicious package that prompted the evacuation of a Northwest D.C. building that houses WMAL radio and others on Thursday has been cleared.

According to police, they received a call about the reported package at 4:13 p.m.

 

 

Police say the scene was cleared at 5:35 p.m. and no hazardous material was found.

The evacuation of the building in the 4400 block of Jenifer Street comes amid a flurry of explosive devices being found at or en route to addresses associated with prominent Democratic politicians and media outlets frequently targeted by President Donald Trump.

The FBI told FOX 5 that this evacuation is not related to the incidents they have been investigating.
