Suspicious package in downtown L.A. causes morning delays
The package, discovered about 8 a.m. at 300 N. Los Angeles St., kept people from entering the building, and prompted traffic to be blocked off, authorities said.
Federal officers at the building, not equipped with their own K-9 unit, called Los Angeles Police Department officers for help.
The package was deemed safe. After officers on scene finish their work, foot traffic into the building will be reopened, police said.
Police said hundreds of people were forced to wait outside as the package was examined.
