L.A. Police Give All-Clear After Threat of Bomb on Bus

Wilshire and Fairfax Street in Los Angeles

An area near the intersection of Wilshire Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue had to be closed down for a period of time.

Los Angeles police gave the all-clear around 1:30 p.m. after the bomb squad was dispatched to an MTA bus that someone threatened had a bomb on board. 

"No device was located," officer Drake Madison told The Hollywood Reporter

The bus was parked close to the intersection of Wilshire Boulevard and South Fairfax Avenue, in a busy area of Los Angeles near the Miracle Mile, close to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, La Brea Tar Pits and the location for the planned Academy museum.

Officers cordoned off the area, but it has since reopened. 

The call for the threat came in just before noon.
