SEATTLE — Police say the suspicious duffel bag thrown at the doors of the Federal Building in downtown Seattle held only a sleeping bag.
The building and a nearby street have been reopened.
Police spokesman Mark Jamieson says employees inside the building called 911 about 5:20 a.m. Tuesday when a man threw a blue bag at the doors and fled.
Workers were kept outside and the Second Avenue was closed for nearly two hours while a bomb squad checked out the bag and made sure it was harmless.
Jamieson says one man questioned by police about the incident was not involved and was released. Police and federal agents continue to investigate.
