Now thought to be a hoax...All Clear.........Delete story if necessary...


Federal Courthouse Evacuated
While authorities believe the threat to be a hoax, they have to take such things seriously.

The threat came in the form of a phone call to Detroit police at about 9:30 Tuesday morning. The caller did not give much information other than to say that a bomb was scheduled to go off at noon.

A couple of thousand employees were evacuated from the building as all ten floors of the courthouse were emptied. It is expected that all will return at 1:00 PM.
