Suspicious backpack reported on University Boulevard turns out to be just a regular backpack

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.—A suspicious backpack was reported on the 3200 block of University Boulevard around 12:30 in the afternoon and after an investigation turned out to be just a regular backpack.

The office building where the backpack was reported to be ended up being evacuated as a precaution. The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office says that was in an abundance of caution after the New York attacks earlier in the week where 31 were injured.

Police have broken down their setup in the area and things are returning to normal in the area.
