Police were called to the scene at 9 MetroTech Center in Downtown Brooklyn around 3:15 p.m., according to an NYPD spokeswoman. Initially, the FDNY said only part of the building was being evacuated while the investigation continued, but police later evacuated the entire building out of an abundance of caution, the spokeswoman said. The suspicious package report was ultimately deemed “unfounded,” the FDNY tweeted, and the evacuation was lifted around 4:50 p.m. “The incident is under control,” the fire department said on Twitter.
