UPDATE: KTLA reports San Bernardino police determined the package that prompted an evacuation at a UPS facility “posed no threat.” The package was addressed to the home of the suspects in Wednesday’s mass shooting, so the UPS facility was evacuated out of an abundance of caution. The package was found to contain clothing.

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — A United Parcel Service facility in San Bernardino was reportedly evacuated Friday night after a driver for UPS discovered they were transporting a package addressed to a home in Redlands connected to the suspects in the mass shooting that occurred Wednesday.
KTLA reports the evacuation order was given out of an abundance of caution, according to San Bernardino Police Chief Jarrod Burguan.
“Package with delivery address to suspect res (sic) in Redlands,” Burguan said on Twitter according to KTLA. “Isolating package to be safe.”
The package is reportedly from a “reputable vendor”, but UPS called police due to potential safety concerns.
The incident comes in the wake of a mass shooting, where 14 victims were killed and others were wounded. The two suspects in the shooting, Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, were killed in a gun battle with police hours later.
