CHICAGO (CBS) — Chicago police shut down Lake Shore Drive on the North Side for more than an hour Wednesday afternoon as they investigated a suspicious package.
The police Bomb and Arson Squad could be seen using bomb disposal robots and bomb-sniffing dogs to check out a package found along the shoulder of northbound Lake Shore Drive near Lawrence Avenue. Traffic was shut down in both directions as police investigated.
Police first received a call about the package shortly before noon, but didn’t find the package until about an hour later, and shut down Lake Shore Drive a short time after that.
