The Goodwill Donation Center just east of Silverlake Rd. and Kino Pkwy. was evacuated Wednesday afternoon after employees found a metal box labeled "explosives" in a donation bin at the store.

Tucson police say the Goodwill location was the only building evacuated.

The TPD bomb squad and Army members responded to the scene. The Army did not take the metal box.

FBI is now investigating the metal box to find out where it came from. Police say the box does not appear to contain explosives.

Officials say the "all clear" was given shortly after 2:20 p.m.
