Kilgore officials say potential bomb was parts of copy machine

KILGORE, TX (KLTV) -

The Kilgore Police Department says the bomb threat in downtown Kilgore Tuesday night turned out to be a box with parts of a copy machine inside. 

The box was found behind a Kilgore attorney's office on North Kilgore Street. 

Officials say the box was cardboard with a piece of PVC pipe sticking out of it. 

Everyone within a one block radius of the box was evacuated. 

No one was hurt and the evacuation ended shortly after.
