Suspicious package leads to shutdown of area around Hyde Park Y; bomb squad determines it wasn't explosive

A suspicious package in front of the YMCA on River Street in Hyde Park around noon emptied the building and brought the BPD bomb squad, K-9 units and at least one news copter running as other officers shut River Street to traffic around noon.

After examining the package, however, a bomb-squad member gave a thumb's up to the other officers, who had the dogs give the thing a sniff. Not long after, River Street was re-opened to traffic.
