EPS told CTV News Edmonton that investigators were called to the scene after 1 p.m. 16, after a package resembling a kind of “device” was found.

Several cruisers blocked roads around the building in the center until around 8:30 p.m.

Parts of 97 Street and 103A Avenue were closed to traffic but have since reopened.

Police could not say what the package was or whether it was potentially harmful as their investigation continues.
