HVAC alarm prompts evacuation, bomb squad response at Williamsburg building

The call came in around 3:12 p.m. from the 400 block of Duke of Gloucester Street. Police evacuated the residents and brought in the Newport News Bomb Squad, after a suspect detonated an IED last week.

Nothing was found during the search, and residents returned to the building around 5:35 p.m.
