Columbia Heights Metro station reopens

By Washington Post editors

UPDATE:
The Columbia Heights Metro station has reopened.


3:20 p.m.

Metro reports that a suspicious package has been found near the Columbia Heights station entrance at 14th and Irving streets NW. Yellow and Green line trains are passing through the station without stopping.

The manager of the Target near the station said that customers in the store have been told to stay inside, and not new customers are being allowed in. Police have blocked off all the stores along 14th and Irving streets.

Due to the security perimeter that has been established outside the Columbia Heights, Metro says it is not able to provide shuttle bus service in the immediate area.

Riders are encouraged to walk to nearby bus stations.


2:41 p.m.

Columbia Heights Metro station has been closed due to a suspicious package. Shuttle bus service requested.
