Fake bomb placed in McDonald’s parking lot

Spokane police briefly shut down Market Street after a device that appeared to be a bomb was discovered in the McDonald’s parking lot.

Spokane police Capt. Eric Olsen said the object was discovered about 5 p.m. The restaurant, 3416 N. Market, was closed and workers “sheltered in place,” Olsen said. The department’s Explosives Disposal Unit “rendered it safe” about 7:15 p.m. and determined it was not explosive, Olsen said.

Olsen said that the object, however, was made to look like it was a bomb and was not hidden. A criminal investigation will be opened in hopes of finding the person who placed object in the parking lot.
