CHICAGO — Authorities have called off the investigation of a bomb threat at a Metra station in Rogers Park Tuesday morning, police said.
Officers were called to the station at 7000 N. Ravenswood Ave. just before 6 a.m. for a bomb threat, according to Officer Michael Sullivan, a Chicago Police Department spokesman. The investigation was called off at 7:12 a.m. after the threat was deemed to be unfounded, police said.
Further information about the threat wasn't immediately available.
Metra stopped Union Pacific North Line trains due to the incident but started to let trains through again after the investigation was over. The agency alerted customers that trains would be delayed.
The CTA tweeted that the No. 96 Lunt buses were being routed away from the Metra station, but the buses also resumed shortly before 7:30 a.m.
