Earlier today the Ed Jones Federal building in Jackson was evacuated after what officials believed to be an explosive device was found. It was a false alarm, however, when it was learned that the suspicious materials turned out to be evidence shipped by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. ATF Special Agent Michael Knight told The Jackson Sun that Friday's delivery was labeled properly by the agency's lab, but when screeners looked at the material through an X-ray, they contacted police.
