D.C. police say they are investigating a “suspicious package” that was reported at 11th and G Streets in Northwest.

Officer Paul Metcalf, a D.C. police spokesman, said emergency workers were sent to the scene at 12:33 p.m. Friday. He said he did not know any details of the package or what roads were being closed in the area.

Metro spokeswoman Caroline Lukas said the Metro Center station was still open, though D.C. police’s work might be affecting customers’ ability to enter at the 11th and G entrance. She said the station’s other entrances remained open.
