KENT, Wash. (AP) - King County sheriff’s deputies evacuated passengers and closed a Kent street after a suspicious bag was found on a Metro bus.

A SWAT team and a bomb squad with two robots responded about 7 a.m. Monday. Nearby businesses were evacuated, near Southeast 240th and 104th Southeast.

Buses were rerouted. The air space over the scene was closed to news helicopters.
