The area around the 1600 Block of North Avenue where an explosion occurred earlier this afternoon has been opened back up. North Avenue is now open in both directions. Our bomb team has completed their operation and the suspicious item has been rendered safe and collected for investigation and evidence. There will be a continued police presence in the area; now that the scene is safe, detectives and evidence technicians will process the incident location and collect evidence. The adult male who was injured in this incident is still detained and charges may be forthcoming. Additional information on a possible arrest will be released as they are available. We thank the public, residents, and business owners in the area for their patience and cooperation. Your safety is imperative to us, and that sometimes comes at a cost of convenience. We’re grateful for your support as we do our jobs.
