WXYZ-TV is reporting that a suspicious package was found on Grandville Street, between Whitlock and Paul, earlier today. The Detroit Police Department's Bomb Squad is currently on the scene and is taking this package away.

Also, in what may or may not be a related item, a helicopter is currently hovering overhead. No marking of any kind are visible on it.

More on this story as it develops.

Update @ 2:04 p.m.
The helicopter that had been overhead for almost an hour is now gone as are the police officers. It's still not clear, for certain, whether or not this actually was a bomb or just a suspicious package that turned out to be an old shoe box.

As an interesting side note: approximately one hour before this happened, the Dearborn Police Department announced that Fordson High School, which is less than two miles away, had also received a bomb threat this morning. Thankfully, their investigation into the matter determined that it was not a credible threat.
