San Bernardino shooting suspect’s package prompts evacuation
SAN BERNARDINO – A UPS facility in San Bernardino was evacuated Friday evening after a delivery driver discovered a package addressed to a “suspect” home in Redlands, authorities said.
The evacuation was ordered out of an abundance of caution, according to San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan.
“Package with delivery address to suspect res (sic) in Redlands,” Burguan said on Twitter. “Isolating package to be safe.”
Althought the item was from a “reputable vendor,” UPS officials called police “just to be safe” after noticing its delivery address, the police chief tweeted.
The incident comes two days after two Redlands residents, Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, killed 14 people at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino before dying in a shootout with authorities.
