ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say part of a terminal at Detroit Metropolitan Airport has been evacuated after a suspicious box was found at an area for loading cargo and luggage onto planes.
Airport spokesman Mike Conway says the box was found about 7:15 a.m. Tuesday and passengers were removed from part of Concourse B at the McNamara Terminal out of "an abundance of caution."
Conway says planes that were to use gates at the concourse were using other gates at the airport. The concourse at the airport in Romulus primarily is used by regional aircraft.
He says details about why security officials determined the box to be suspicious weren't immediately available. The airport is located about 17 miles southwest of Detroit.
