Iowa City police say they detonated a suspicious package found in a busy area Sunday evening.

Officials found the package near the US Bank, just across from the pedestrian mall downtown – not far from where the Iowa Arts Festival was taking place.

The bomb squad came in and cleared the area.

At around 9 p.m., authorities safely detonated the package.

The incident is still under investigation.
