Police say the North Terminal at Detroit Metropolitan Airport will reopen within the hour after bomb squads responded to an “explosive device” found at a security checkpoint, MyFoxDetroit.com reported.
Authorities had evacuated part of a terminal as a bomb squad responds to an “explosive device” found at a security checkpoint, MyFoxDetroit.com reported.
Airport spokesman Mike Conway says the check-in lobby at the airport’s North Terminal in Romulus was shut down about 6:15 a.m.
Crowds of people were seen pulling and carrying luggage leaving the North Terminal and heading towards the airport’s Smith Terminal. Conway says the item was in an X-ray machine at a security checkpoint. Sources tell MyFoxDetroit.com the item was discovered in a carry-on bag and is being checked out by two bomb squads.
One person is in custody, the report said. No injuries are reported.
