Suspicious vehicle briefly closes D.C. City Hall

The 1300 block of Pennsylvania Avenue, in front of the John A. Wilson and Ronald Reagan buildings, was briefly closed Thursday morning due to a suspicious vehicle in the area, according to an officer at the scene.

The Wilson Building, which is D.C. City Hall, was placed under lockdown while a bomb squad checked out a car parked between the two buildings.

The suspicious vehicle was cleared from the area around 10 a.m. and the road has been reopened to traffic.
