The "all clear" has been given at the McNamara Federal building, after a suspicious package was found earlier this morning.

The bomb squad and other emergency crews responded to the scene. Employees were forced to clear the building. Michigan Ave. was also closed off for a three-block stretch between Cass and Third.

Around 7:40AM, a loud "boom" was heard, which was the sound of authorities detonating the suspicious item. After this, the roads re-opened, workers were allowed back inside, and emergency crews began clearing the scene.
