Bomb Threat Disrupts Metro Red Line

Rockville, MD -

Montgomery County Police and other local authorities are wrapping up an investigation after a female Metro passenger made a bomb threat as she exited a Red Line train. According to some witnesses, the woman dropped to her knees in prayer after speaking to somebody on the phone. There were unconfirmed reports that she had just heard about a Muslim bombing in India.

Police have checked the rails and the impacted train and have found no evidence of an actual bomb. The investigation will be wrapping up shortly and service should return to normal as the morning continues.

There are new details emerging with time and we urge our readers to stay tuned for further updates. We are currently attempting to contact Montgomery County officials for a comment.
