Suspicious package found near OKC Thunder game rendered harmless
OKLAHOMA CITY – No one was injured after a suspicious bag was found outside the OKC Thunder game late last night.
Officers say there were no calls or threats related to the bag.
Due to its closeness to the NBA Playoffs, police erred on the side of caution and notified the bomb squad.
Authorities said fans got stuck in a bit more traffic than usual trying to get out of Bricktown at about 10:30 p.m. because of the scare.
Roads were shut down in the area for almost two hours.
The bomb squad determined there was nothing harmful inside the bag and that it belonged to a transient who accidentally left it behind.
