ATLANTA – An all-clear was given after a suspicious package was investigated Tuesday at the State Capitol complex in downtown Atlanta.

Traffic going south down Piedmont Avenue from MLK Jr. Drive was blocked as the bomb squad checked out the package.

Georgia State Patrol, Atlanta Police and Atlanta Fire Rescue were all on the scene in front of the James H. "Sloppy" Floyd Veterans Memorial Building.

The container, which had a liquid inside of it, was not a danger to the public, authorities said.
