DENVER - An RTD station and several streets between Interstate 25 and Evans Avenue were shut down Monday night as the Denver Police bomb squad investigated a suspicious package that was found on an RTD bus.

At a news briefing, police said the bus had been evacuated and that a man was in custody.

At 9 p.m., the Denver Police Department tweeted that the bomb squad was responding to S. Colorado and Buchtel boulevards to investigate the package at the RTD station.
