UPDATE: Police have declared the scene "all clear".


Waco police were evacuating citizens within 500 feet of the Valero store at 25930 US-84 and Speegleville Road after a suspicious suitcase was reportedly found leaning against a gas pump. The suitcase reportedly contained wires that suggested it may be some sort of explosive device.

Students and staff at nearby River Valley Intermediate School were being asked to stay inside the building, but authorities told our news partner, KWTX, that the school was not within the perimeter of concern, but they are being cautious.

Authorities told KWTX parents wishing to pick up their children will need to access Speegleville Road via Highway 6.
