Bag marked 'bang' prompts LA train station evac
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A commuter train station in downtown Los Angeles has reopened after a backpack marked "Bang" raised suspicions and prompted an evacuation.
Metro spokeswoman Gayle Anderson says someone discovered the bag shortly after 5 p.m. Tuesday on a Red Line train at Union Station.
The all-clear was given at around 7:45 p.m., and Anderson says trains are now running without delays.
Sheriff's Lt. Vince Carter tells the Los Angeles Times that it turns out the owner of the backpack is nicknamed "Bang Bang."
Anderson says the incident remains under investigation.
