Bomb scare on Green shuts down surrounding streets

A bomb scare on the New Haven Green caused New Haven Police Department officers to close off some of the surrounding streets Saturday night, including the block of Chapel Street between Temple and Church.

A suspicious bag was found on a park bench on the edge of the Green around 11 p.m., according to an officer on the scene. The bomb squad arrived to investigate shortly after the scare occurred and the closed blocks are expected to reopen soon, the officer said.
