UPDATE: Battery Cause of Explosion Scare at Columbus Police HQ
COLUMBUS -- A battery exploding in the lobby of Columbus Division of Police Headquarters prompted a massive evacuation Tuesday evening.
The battery was being charged in the corner of the lobby by construction crews doing work outside the front entrance. The loud blast startled the officer working the front desk and several workers on the floor above. They reported an explosion which prompted the massive police and firefighter response.
The reports first came in about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. The building was immediately put on lock down and roads were blocked off. Investigators went through the building floor-by-floor to search for the cause.
About 8:30 p.m., the building was evacuated and the people inside were put onto buses. The explosion was quickly ruled out as an act of terrorism.
Officers said the massive response served as a good exercise in case the police headquarters were to ever be targeted by terrorists.
