Suspicious Package Closes Downtown St.Louis

By Jason Rima. CREATED Oct 10, 2013

ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis police have shut down a small area of downtown after a suspicious package was found outside a building.

The package was discovered about 8 a.m. Thursday near a building in the 1500 block of Market Street.

A robot was initially brought in to help deal with it.

Bomb squad technicians then set off a controlled explosion 90 minutes later.

Market Street was closed in the area and onlookers were being kept away.

The building houses many city offices, including municipal court.

It is next to a large Post Office.
