LOS ANGELES (AP) - Union Station in downtown Los Angeles has reopened after a bomb scare forced a temporary shutdown of the bus, train and subway hub.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority says a bomb squad detonated a suspicious package left on a train platform Thursday afternoon.
Marc Littman says the package did not contain any explosives.
The station was evacuated after the package was discovered around 2 p.m., forcing passengers to get off Metrolink, Amtrak and MTA trains and board buses to get to nearby operating stations.
