A suspicious package called in this morning around 11:30 a.m. has the bomb squad currently on the scene at The Bonaventure hotel in downtown. There have been no street closures around the hotel, which is on Figueroa between 4th and 5th, at this time, according to the LAPD. It should emphasized that this is not a bomb scare or threat. Rather, a package left unattended was found to be suspicious. UPDATE, 3:10 p.m.: The bomb squad still at the location, but there are no street closures or evacuations. "It's still an investigation at this point," Officer Sara Faden said. UPDATE, 5:50 p.m.: As of 5:25 p.m., no explosives or bombs were found. Situation is over.
