At approximately 12:05 pm, 14th Street was closed from N to P Streets NW. The Police Department received a call alerting them to a suspicious package on the roof of the 7- Eleven at 14th Street and Rhode Island Avenue NW. The 7-Eleven was evacuated by police officers. Once the street was closed, all people were asked to remain inside the stores or buildings in the vicinty.
Borderstan spoke to Officer J. Munk, who was keeping people off the sidewalks. Fortunately, the scare ended up being a false alarm and the package appeared to be a brown purse, which had been tossed on top of the roof.
