"All clear" given at Patrick Air Force Base in Florida after bomb threat

(Reuters) - An “all clear” signal was given at Patrick Air Force Base in Florida on Friday an hour after a bomb threat forced authorities to evacuate the area, the base said in a tweet.

“There is no credible threat to the area at this time,” the air force base said.

The threat came hours after four people were killed and eight injured in a shooting at the Naval Air Station Pensacola. A member of the Saudi Air Force visiting the United States for military training was the suspected shooter.
