MSP Airport mall back open following evacuation

MSP airport reopened, no hazardous materials

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. - It is back to business as usual at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport after an unattended bag forced the evacuation of part of the Terminal 1 mall, according to the airport.

Shortly before 4:30 p.m., reports of delays in Terminal 1 began to come into the KARE 11 newsroom. Shortly thereafter, the airport confirmed in a tweet that a portion of the airport mall had been cleared and shut down while police investigate the unattended bag.

 

The airport reports the bomb squad was on scene investigating. About an hour later, the airport confirmed authorities found nothing hazardous in the bag and that all areas of the airport were once again open.

Travelers inside the airport were asked to walk around the closed area. There were "spotty" flight delays as a result of the incident.
