Police in Philadelphia Friday afternoon responded to a bomb threat targeting a shopping mall near the Pennsylvania Convention Center, where election ballots are still being counted.

The police said they evacuated the mall and stopped all commuter trains that run through a subterranean level below the building.

Police and the mall’s internal security swept the property with K-9 units, but no explosives were found. Ultimately, pedestrians were cleared to return to the property.

A police report said the two calls came from the same person saying a bomb was about to go off.
