Downtown OKC library evacuated because of bomb threat

Police investigated today a reported bomb threat at the Ronald J. Norick Downtown Library in Oklahoma City, a police spokesman said.

Roads around the library were blocked and the building evacuated, Sgt. Paco Balderrama said.

"We received a report of a letter that was sent to an employee in reference to a bomb being placed at the downtown library indicating an approximate date and time that it was going to go off," Balderrama said.

Police didn't find a bomb after twice searching the inside of the library at 300 Park Ave., Balderrama said.

At 1 p.m., an all-clear signal was given. The roads around the library were reopened and people were allowed back in the building.
