Police shut down downtown Phoenix street to investigate suspicious package

A downtown Phoenix street was shut down for several hours Monday night as police investigated a suspicious package found in the area.

Officers responded to the scene near 1st Avenue and Van Buren Street around 8:30 p.m. after reports that a large box was found sitting on Van Buren. Officials say the box raised suspicions after it was discovered to have some type of wires coming from inside.

Video from Air15 showed police vehicles blocking Van Buren from 1st to 3rd Avenue. Police reportedly evacuated surrounding businesses as a precaution.

Officials say a bomb squad unit at the scene investigated and detonated the device late Monday.

No injuries were reported.

The box was reportedly found in an alleyway behind Valley Metro headquarters. Phoenix police confirm they are looking into the possibility the scare may be connected to a current transit dispute.

CenPhoCamp is back again to help greater downtown Phoenix business owners, their customers and residents succeed in the new economy. The free event will run from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 9, in Rooms 202, 252 and 256 at the Cronkite School, located at 555 N. Central Ave. on the Arizona State University downtown campus.

The conference will feature 12 35-minute sessions designed to teach small business owners and the like how to better use the resources they may not know they have access to.

The volunteer-run workshop is comprised of local practitioners willing to show others exactly how to do what they do. Kirk Yuhnke of ABC15 will discuss how to make your business story worthy, Gary Campbell will present on how working with universities can help your bottom line and pundit-turned-marketer Kevin Spidel will show how branding is the new customer loyalty program. These three, along with nine other hand-picked presenters, will highlight the afternoon workshop.

Food will be provided by the attendees themselves, as conference organizers hope to create a community learning forum rather than a lecture environment.

Following the conference will be an after-party at “The District” at the downtown Sheraton with hosted appetizers and drink specials from 5 to 7:30 p.m.
