July 28—The Tucson police bomb squad responded to the federal courthouse Tuesday morning following a bomb threat.

The call came in around 10 a.m. and the bomb squad is expected to remain on the scene at 400 W. Congress St. for several hours, said Tucson Police Department spokesman Officer Kristopher Goins.

No further details were immediately available, he said.

TPD will release a list of road closures soon, Goins said. Drivers are encouraged to find alternate routes.

Another bomb threat was called in around the same time to the Arizona Attorney General’s office in Phoenix, the Arizona Republic reported. The office, located east of the state Capitol on 13th Avenue and Jefferson Street, was evacuated.
