ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say they've evacuated part of the smaller of two terminals at Detroit Metropolitan Airport as a bomb squad responds to a suspicious item at a security checkpoint.

Airport spokesman Mike Conway says the check-in lobby at the airport's North Terminal in Romulus was shut down about 6:15 a.m. Monday.

No injuries are reported.

Conway says the item was in an X-ray machine at a security checkpoint. He says one bomb squad responded and a second was called to the scene.

Conway says it's not immediately known how many travelers are affected. Video taken by helicopter and shown on Detroit-area TV stations showed hundreds of people walking away from the terminal along a sidewalk. Many of them were pulling or carrying luggage.
