Bomb squad investigates suspicious device in East Village

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The East Village is back open Thursday morning after the bomb squad investigated a suspicious device.

Police arrived on the scene Wednesday night at G Street and 16th Street and determined the device could be a pipe bomb. The area was closed off, but no evacuations were ordered.

After bomb technicians x-rayed the device they determined it was harmless and removed it.

"They gave us a description, we determined the device was inert and posed no hazard to the public," said Jon Atkinson with the San Diego Bomb Squad.

The bomb squad says the device appears to be a commercial light fixture.
