A police bomb squad was called in to investigate after a suspicious package was found in the Kennedy subway station Tuesday night.

While police investigated, the entire station was evacuated and service was shut down for several hours at the busy transit hub.
Police said they received a call from TTC staff at around 7 p.m., saying that a cleaner had found a package on a subway car.
The package has a note on it, saying it was a bomb, police said.
Shuttle buses were used to transport passengers as police investigated.
