RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A suspicious package in front of Patrick Henry Elementary School shut down Semmes Avenue for a while Monday night.

Police closed off Semmes between 31st Street and Forest Hill as they checked it out. It turns out it was just someone's suitcase and it never posed a threat to anyone.

After a couple of hours, the road was re-opened.
