Suspicious device under investigation in Avondale neighborhood

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.—Officers went to the 3800 block of Arden Street after a suspicious device was reported in Avondale Tuesday night around 8 p.m., police say.

A suspicious package was reportedly on the home's front porch, so in an abundance of caution, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office brought their bomb squad unit out to investigate.

Authorities were forced to block an intersection as the investigation continued and nearby residents were told there was a voluntary evacuation in effect.

The incident is ongoing.
