An elementary school and nearby homes were evacuated Thursday afternoon after a suspicious package was reported near NW 14 and Youngs Boulevard.

Sgt. Chris Brown said police were notified about the package, described as a suitcase, about 2:50 p.m. He said officers worked to evacuate Hawthorne Elementary School and that students were allowed to leave with their parents.

There is no lockdown in place at the school, Brown said.

Residents within a block of the suitcase were also asked to leave the area.

Bomb squad technicians are at the scene to investigate the suitcase.
