WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - U.S. Capitol Police have cleared the suspicious vehicle at 2nd Street and Independence Avenue Southeast. All test results from the vehicle came back negative.

A police source told WUSA9 the suspect is a Middle Eastern man who warned officers that there were "wires" in the trunk. They took that to mean there was a bomb, but after investigating, they didn't find one.

The incident forced police to shut down several blocks in the Capitol Hill area while they investigated.
