Suspicious package at Capitol So. Metro
Capitol South Metro has reopened. FBI Washington Field Office spokeswoman Lindsay Godwin said there is no threat.
Metro says the Capitol South station is closed due to a suspicious package outside.
Trains are passing through the station.
Capitol Police are tightly controlling where people can walk outside the station, which is about two blocks from the Capitol building. Riders trying to leave the station were initially redirected to the Federal Center Southwest and Eastern Market stations. Other passengers were later allowed to leave by taking an elevator and exiting about a block from the entrance where the package was found.
It wasn't clear whether additional precautions were being taken because of the shooting Saturday of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
Stay with Dr. Gridlock for more details.
