NEW YORK — Police have given the all clear after officers rushed people out of the lobby of Trump Tower while they investigated a report of a suspicious package.

The package was discovered in the lobby of the building.

New York Police Department Det. Hubert Reyes told CNN that the package was investigated by the department’s bomb squad. The Secret Service was involved in the investigation as well, Reyes said.

“Suspicious package at Trump Tower has been examined by NYPD Bomb Squad. Deemed to be an unattended bag and safe,” police tweeted. Earlier police spokesman J. Peter Donald tweeted the package was in the lobby.

President-elect Donald Trump lives in the tower and has his offices there, though he is presently at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.
