Police Shut Down Major Hill Intersection

A suspicious package discovered just before lunchtime near Union Station led to police and fire officials shutting down a major Capitol Hill intersection, and hazardous material personnel have been called in to investigate. Several buildings near the intersection of North Capitol Street and Massachusetts Avenue were evacuated and officers from multiple agencies including the Capitol Police have cordoned off several blocks near the post office located at 50 Massachusetts Ave. NW. At 12:45 p.m. individuals who work in buildings just west of Union Station were still waiting outside as bomb squad personnel entered the facility. — John McArdle
