SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco police say they have evacuated Union Square after a police officer reported a suspicious package.

Police spokesman Gordon Shyy says the report came in around 11:50 a.m. Thursday. In addition to the evacuation, a one-block radius around Union Square has been shutdown to vehicles and pedestrians and businesses have been ordered to shelter in place.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the bomb squad was examining the package at 1 p.m. and cable car service was also shut down.

Union Square is a major tourist draw. It is surrounded by high-end retail stores.
