DOTHAN, AL (WKRG) The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms along with a bomb squad have cordoned off a large section of 6th Avenue in Dothan. Investigators worked through the night to identify a suspicious package at the Medical Center Terrace Apartments.
The report of the suspicious package and the response from ATF agents is likely linked to a pipe bomb that exploded earlier this week in nearby Taylor, Alabama. The bomb exploded in a man's vehicle as he was driving to work, according to WDHD-TV in Dothan. Following the explosion, a vehicle was searched at the Southeast Alabama Medical Center but investigators found nothing.
