No explosive device found in backpack prompts downtown Sacramento building to be evacuated



Specifically, the detectives find out as far as he’s concerned about the backpack. For the moment, we treat this as a safe situation. Which is why this particular perimeter is set up right now where this is in place to keep people a safe distance away. Because it’s Friday it might be good news. Friday with rain means not many staff standing outside. This can be a good thing, with people working remotely from home and not many audience members – and the public seems to have been affected. Much of the activity is outside of our earlier view of the green gates between these two hand/beige-tan/beige buildings. This is where the car cut off, presumably in connection with the response to this report of a bomb going off inside one of these county buildings where we are. This is the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department that has responded and the city police department is responsible for the closure around the area. We’ll keep trying and getting more information, however, the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department Public Information Officer is a long way away, so it’ll be a while before we get much of an update. Again, if you’re just joining us, the main thing you should know is that there is an active response to the bomb threat that includes these county buildings where we are, and the area around that stop car traffic. Let me define these areas. We stand at 28th and Q looking at R Street. Q and R Streets, 28th and 29th Streets affected. This is an area to avoid as this can take a little time to try and resolve again, when it comes to bombing threats this is not something that should be taken without some amount of apprehension. And the Bomber Squad will obviously do everything they can to check mate – to make sure this is safe. Lisa: And you mentioned that they have vacated the building and you can clearly see that there are many mixed-use apartment buildings around you. Did they, even if they were close to the streets, go door to door telling people to stay inside or leave their homes? Mike: You know, it really looks like it’s on the right on the back where the yellow stripe is. In fact, if you can go left. You can see – I should say right. I’ve seen the sidewalk. We’ve seen people being allowed to walk on the sidewalk to get away from the ocean. I don’t think it’s a case where there’s much of a concern across the street from these buildings, most of them are in the middle between those two buildings. At this point there doesn’t seem to be any activity with any of the residents, no real actual notification going to any of those residents other than the fact that they’re handling all four corners of this to make sure they haven’t been affected. Lisa: And I want to give some people their perspective on the Sacramento County Human Services Department. I want to go over a number of things they offer on their website, child support services, EBT card information, services for businesses, services for vets, and staff, for WTW participants. YOU CAN PLOW THERE TO PUT THERE FOR CALWORKS CASH, and we know this is a tough economic time for a lot of people out there. We don’t know what the exact case is but there might be something to do because of that because also why he’s gone – someone might go into a building like this. Can you update people back on what the officers told you about what’s going on inside? Mike: Just to the first point in terms of all the changed servers and services. If you are looking – it is offered. If you look at the parking lot you will notice that it is not full. There are cars, but it doesn’t feel like a whole bunch of people milling around, especially so many kids in this area. This is a good sign. Second, it’s Friday and it’s raining. These two factors may limit the number of people who may be, hopefully facing what we can say. Again, not seeing too many affected people from inside the building standing in the rain with us as we are monitoring the situation. In terms of what was going on, earlier in this report the report was that a man walked into the building with a backpack and claimed to have a bomb or some sort of explosive device and that the person we were told was arrested. They emptied the building of an apparent measure of caution. And what’s happening now as we saw before we went up in the air, what appeared to be a missile squad response or explosives responding between those two buildings out of sight of where we are. So we don’t have an update on what’s going on inside the building right now other than the fact that we’ve been told by the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department that there are a bunch of concerns inside the building. We’ve seen a response from the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department responding to this and supposedly taking action to assess the situation and see what they should do. If you look to the right on the sidewalk. To give a sense that while there is a limit, this guy is just walking down the street, clearly not concerned with the condition. So it hasn’t emerged as much of a safety threat, but an important response to making sure people stay as far away as vehicular traffic is. Lisa: Thank you for the update. They vacated the Sacramento County Aid building and the technical name as the Department of Humanitarian Aid and gave things to people especially in financial need even to help people with groceries. We’ll get more when they close the area near 28, R and
