Police investigate suspicious package found at Kentucky TV station

A Kentucky news station was at the center of an investigation last night after a suspicious package was found outside.

After an investigation, the Lexington Police Department’s Hazardous Response crew eventually ruled that the package found at WKYT was not hazardous.

The package was found after a viewer reportedly demanded to see a reporter and was seen peeking through windows of the station.

Employees stayed inside and continued scheduled newscasts as the entire event unfolded.

Officers also visited other media outlets in Lexington as a safety precaution.
