Part of a Boeing plant in suburban Philadelphia remains evacuated and police are investigating after officials say they received a threat related to the facility.
Boeing spokesman Damien Mills says several hundred employees at the facility were evacuated between 7:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m.Tuesday after officials received some sort of threat. He did not say how the threat was received but Ridley Township police say it was related to a note left in a bathroom.
Outside the plant dozens of employees were gathered, awaiting word on when they could return. One worker, Doc Price, says officials “just said, ‘Everyone outof the building.'”
The plant occupies a sprawling site a few miles south of Philadelphia.
The facility produces aircraft including the H-47 Chinook helicopter and the V-22 Osprey.
