Package deemed safe, OKC City Hall reopens

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - City Hall in Oklahoma City has reopened after a suspicious package found outside the building was determined to be no danger.

City officials say the package was found Tuesday morning in a trash can on the south side of the building in downtown Oklahoma City.

The south entrance was closed until about 9:45 a.m. when the police department's bomb squad determined there was no explosive device in the package.

Police declined to say what was in the package other than to call it a "soft object."

A City Council meeting in the building went on as scheduled.
