ST. LOUIS — The bomb squad was at the Concordia Seminary campus Monday afternoon. Crews were at the main building located at 801 Seminary Place. The school is located just west of Forest Park.
Workers in the campus mailroom started opening a package delivered to the building. They discovered wires sticking out, stopped opening the package and called police to report the suspicious item.
A worker wearing a blast suit went into the building. He came out of the building with an item in his hands. It was passed to another member of the bomb squad. They will likely detonate the item soon.
The campus was on lockdown while investigators work the scene. A representative says that all staff and students are safe.
St. Louis County Police have given notice that the scene is clear.
