Police: Suspicious Package Was Explosive Device

DETROIT (WWJ) – Police have detonated a suspicious package that stopped traffic on a  southwest Detroit street for several hours, Friday.

Police and Homeland Security agents were on the scene near West Fort and West Grand Boulevard , to investigate a potential bomb threat.

Police told WWJ Newsradio 950 that someone reported a suspicious package shortly before 10:30 a.m. 

Friday afternoon, Detroit Police said they detonated the package, identified as an explosive device, but declined to say exactly what made the package suspicious or exactly where it was found — although it was believed to have been in an alley.

Satellite maps show a credit union and an engine parts warehouse near the intersection. 

There were no reported injuries.
