Officials have given the "all clear" after a portion of Times Square was shut down due to a suspicious package.



A portion of the popular tourist destination was shut down and cleared around 3 p.m. after a suspicious package was found. The NYPD confirmed they investigated the threat and called in a bomb squad.



Times Square was previously evacuated in June 2015 when a suspicious package was found. Officials defused a homemade bomb in May 2010.
