05-22-08_1338

In case you hadn’t heard this yet.  From Council Member Jim Graham:

Dear Friends, At approximately 11:30 am, Target received a call there is an explosive device in the building. An off duty MPD officer working at Target received the call and reported it to Management.

Management has evacuated the building as a result of what MPD says was a phone threat. 200 persons have been evacuated. I have spoken personally to the MPD officers who are in charge of the sweep. They see this as very possibly routine they are taking all due precautions. The dogs are entering the building now.

Explosive Ordinance Division (EOD) with the MPD is on the scene. 14th St has been closed between Irving St. and Park Rd.

Inspector Delgado has advised the EOD sweep of the building will take approximately 45 minutes.

Bests, Councilmember Jim Graham
