MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Officials have evacuated Terminal 2 at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport while authorities investigate a device that appears suspicious.
 
Airport spokeswoman Melissa Scovronski says officials with the Transportation Security Administration found a suspicious device in a checked piece of baggage at about 4:30 p.m. Sunday.
 
She did not have details on the nature of the device. The Bloomington Police Department's bomb squad is currently examining it.
 
Authorities have evacuated all of Terminal 2, which is the smaller of two terminals at the airport. Drivers are not allowed to drop off or pick up passengers at the terminal, but the parking ramp is open.
 
No one is in custody. There are no injuries.
