CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Police had to block a busy street Tuesday morning in uptown Charlotte while authorities investigated a report of a suspicious package.
Channel 9 reporter Gina Esposito was on scene just after 6:30 a.m. and watched as officers blocked Martin Luther King Boulevard between Church Street and South Tryon Street.
Investigators told Channel 9 that the suspicious package was noticed at the Duke Energy building at 400 South Tryon Street. Police said employees found a small manila envelope with suspicious handwriting on it and, due to all the recent national events, and out of an abundance of caution, called 911.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police notified the bomb squad, who brought bomb-sniffing dogs to the scene, which was across from the Chamber of Commerce.
