Workers evacuated the Broadway Summit Office Building (where I intern) at 3101 Broadway Street in Kansas City, Mo., at about 9:30 this morning after someone called in a bomb threat on the Central Communications Credit Union, located on the first floor.
The KCMO Police and Fire Departments responded moments after the building was evacuated, but Captain Mark Terman said his unit determined that it was a hoax after no explosive device was located in the building.
Terman would not disclose which business was threatened, but Connie Dodson, a loan officer for the Central Communications Credit Union, confirmed that the threat was indeed called in on her office. She said she could not disclose any other information.
Captain Terman indicated that similar bomb threats had been called in on the business’s other offices around the city today, but could not disclose where and when they occurred.
Workers were allowed back into the building at about 10:30 – an hour after the threat was called in.
I apologize for the graininess of the photos. They were taken with a cell phone.
