A bomb scare outside a Bossier City abortion clinic led firefighters to seal off the area. Just before 9am, workers found a backpack near the back door to the Bossier Medical Suite Abortion Clinic, 1505 Doctors Drive. Firefighters searched the area but could not locate an owner of the bag. The Shreveport Fire Department was called in for assistance. Shreveport firefighters used a robot to launch a water cannon to open the backpack. They then discovered the bag only contained a pair of underwear. Firefighters remind people who find a suspicious package to report it to authorities and not try to open the package. "Due to the heightened level of Homeland Security, all suspicious packages should be treated as dangerous until professionals can render them safe," said Bossier City police Detective Corporal Sam Wyatt.
