UPDATE

The federal building in downtown Roswell is open again, according to authorities, as are the streets surrounding it.

ORIGINAL STORY

Sections of West 5th Street and West 6th Street in downtown Roswell — between Richardson Avenue and Pennsylvania Avenue — have been closed by city police and fire units.

Roswell Police Department Public Information Officer Todd Wildermuth said the street closures are the result of a suspicious package being found outside the Federal Building.

The building has been evacuated and is on lockdown.
