ATLANTA -- A suspicious package that prompted police to close several downtown streets early Thursday was a duffel bag containing clothes.

Officials were alerted by a caller to 911 who reported seeing a man in a hat and dark clothing jump out of a dark sedan and drop a black duffel bag, then jump back into the car and drive away.

Police closed streets around Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd and Williams Street NW shortly after midnight.

The contents of the bag were determined a few hours later.
