(UPDATED 4:30 p.m.) Authorities say a search of the Tallahassee National Guard Armory has turned up nothing dangerous. The search for the man who made the bomb threat goes on.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) _ The National Guard Armory in Tallahassee has been evacuated after a man reported placing a bomb inside the facility.
Florida Department of Military Affairs spokesman Lt. Justin Phillips says Tallahassee police were told that someone made a threat Tuesday morning.
Police haven’t released any details but are searching the building. The Florida National Guard Joint Operations Center is monitoring.
The incident comes five days after 24-year-old Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez fatally shot four Marines and a sailor at two military sites in Chattanooga.
On Saturday, Florida Gov. Rick Scott ordered that six storefront recruiting offices across the state be moved into nearby armories. Scott also ordered that every member of the National Guard be armed.
