Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla._ 

The Fort Sill Bomb Squad was called to investigate what appeared to be a bomb Saturday morning.

Emergency officials were called to a parking lot at Northwest Ozmun between 21st and Sheridan Road around 11:00 p.m. after a passerby spotted a suspicious object and called 911. Police evacuated a 150 yard radius that included the evacuation of a barber shop, car wash, and a couple of homes. 

Police said the object was wrapped in green electrical tape and had a white wire sticking out of the top. But after several hours, bomb squad determined the device was not an explosive device.
