Emergency workers have blocked off a segment of Pearl Street after a “suspicious metal device” was discovered outside a building in the Financial District, according to a spokeswoman for the Boston Police Department.
A bomb squad responded to the scene to examine the device, which was found around 11 a.m.
The building has not been evacuated and no one has been injured, the spokeswoman said.
