Suspicious package found downtown is not a threat, ATCEMS says

The scene has been cleared after first responders investigated a suspicious package that was found in downtown Austin earlier today. 

The package was found in the 400 block of West 3rd Street around 12:39 p.m.

That is close to the same area where authorities investigated a suspicious package on September 5. After a few hours, the package was deemed safe after it was investigated by APD's bomb squad.

Austin-Travis County EMS says it had sent assets, along with the Austin Police Department and the Austin Fire Department, to investigate the suspicious package. 

No other information is available, according to ATCEMS.
