The Texas Capitol building in Austin, Texas, was reportedly evacuated due to a suspicious package.
According to Representative Matt Schaefer, his offices were evacuated in addition to several others. Schaefer says he has evacuated all of his staff from the building. Authorities have since given an all-clear. The package was investigated but “no viable threat was discovered.”
The Austin Police Department was the first to respond to the incident, but they have reportedly handed over the case to another agency.
