A report of a suspicious package had much of downtown Salt Lake City cordoned off by police early Friday morning.
Salt Lake City police dispatchers said the 911 call came in at 3:15 a.m. after a security guard reported seeing a man leave a briefcase against a wall near the Radisson Hotel near 200 West and South Temple. Police, firefighters and bomb disposal experts responded, locking down the area.
The scene was cleared about 6:15 a.m. after the package was detonated. Subsequent examination determined the case had contained nothing harmful.
