MANCHESTER — A suspicious item found at the Mall of New Hampshire led to a partial evacuation on Sunday, as Manchester police and the New Hampshire State Police Bomb Squad investigated the potential threat.

The mall, located on South Willow Street, saw an area of its parking lot and several internal sections closed off to the public after the item was reported.

Authorities quickly responded to the scene, and the decision was made to deploy the resources of the New Hampshire State Police Bomb Squad (EOD).

EOD technicians assessed the item, and after a thorough examination, determined that it did not pose a danger.

The situation was resolved, and the mall was deemed safe for patrons.

Following the all-clear, the mall reopened, allowing shoppers to resume their activities without further disruption.

The incident at the Mall of New Hampshire marked the second time that day the NHSP EOD was called into action.

Earlier, they had responded to a bomb threat in Amherst.

No further details regarding the Amherst threat have been released at this time.
