McGill Reopened 3 Buildings After Police Found The Suspicious Package Wasn't Dangerous

Early Tuesday morning, Montreal police received a call about a "suspicious package" dropped off at McGill University, which led to three buildings on the campus being evacuated.

This resulted in police creating a security perimeter on the school grounds, near where the package was located. The school told everyone to "avoid area around Arts, Dawson Hall and Leacock buildings at this time."

Then, at 10:49 a.m., McGill let the public know that the "incident" was over.

SPVM spokesperson Véronique Comtois Comtois said the tactical squad deemed the package not to be dangerous after analyzing it.

The security perimeter police made this morning was removed and the buildings that were evacuated have reopened.
