Update, 11 a.m.: The courthouse was cleared and the streets nearby were reopened. Court proceedings will be delayed Monday as officials screen inmates and search the holding cells.

Original post: The D.C. Superior Courthouse building was evacuated and some Northwest streets closed Monday morning as following reports of suspicious abandoned vehicle, authorities said.

Everyone was ordered outside, including individuals who were in holding cells.

E Street was closed between 4th and 5th Streets, city authorities said, and Indiana Avenue was closed from 3rd to 6th Streets.
