Suspicious device prompts downtown L.A. evacuation on Figueroa

A suspicious device prompted authorities to evacuate a parking garage and a section of South Figueroa Street in downtown Los Angeles on Monday afternoon.

A call regarding the device came in around 2:33 p.m., said Capt. Kelly Muniz, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Police Department.

The LAPD’s Bomb Squad and the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives responded, Muniz said.

Further details about the device were not immediately provided, other than a package containing a “suspicious device” was found, she said.

South Figueroa between 8th and 9th streets was evacuated, along with a parking garage at 888 S. Figueroa St., Muniz said.

Ginger Colbrun, an ATF spokeswoman, could not immediately confirm any details about the situation.

This is an evolving story and will be updated.
