Posted By on Mon, Feb 2, 2015 at 4:22 PM

Update: SFPD says someone found a box marked with "ammunition" on the front and called the cops. Police shut down the area while bomb squads investigated. The cops are now clearing the scene and has determined that the box found on the sidewalk was empty.

We're getting word that police have closed off streets in the Richmond District after another suspicious package was spotted this afternoon. 

According to media reports, police have closed off Geary and Arguello boulevards while they investigate the scene. 

Traffic has been diverted so you might want to find another way around there. We'll keep you posted. 

Last week, police were called out to Mission and 11th streets after a suspicious package was located. Police discovered a suitcase filled with body parts. They later arrested 59-year-old Mark Andrus on suspicion of murder.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
