Suspicious package closes Baltimore courthouse
A Baltimore fire official says no injuries have been reported in connection with a suspicious package that prompted the shutdown of a city courthouse.
Fire spokesman Kevin Cartwright says a hazardous materials team is examining the package at the Calvert Street courthouse, but he did not have a description of the package.
Chief Deputy Sheriff Henry Martin says no one was being let in or out of the courthouse while the hazmat team investigates. But he says the building is not being evacuated.
The package follows five threatening letters that arrived Monday at Baltimore City Hall and at the courthouse. One of the four letters sent to City Hall on Monday contained a white powder that prompted an evacuation.
