BREAKING: Supreme Court grounds evacuated after suspicious package reported

This comes as there were protests outside the court against the ruling striking down affirmative action.

On Thursday afternoon, police were seen evacuating protestors outside of the Supreme Court in Washington, DC after a suspicious package was discovered.

US Capitol Police wrote on Twitter, "We are assisting the Supreme Court Police with a suspicious package. Out of an abundance of caution, we are also helping keep the area clear. We cannot provide further information about another agency’s case, but we will keep the community updated about our involvement."

The Capitol Police have shut down streets in the immediate vicinity of the Supreme Court building, which lies across the street from the US Capitol building.

The evacuation comes as the Supreme Court struck down affirmative action in a morning ruling.

At 3 pm, Capitol Police gave the all clear and announced roads in the area would be reopened shortly. This is a breaking story and will be updated.
