Emergency services and the bomb squad stormed to the scene in Orlando, Florida.
An unattended bag was left in front of a memorial outside the Pulse nightclub – just 10 days before the one-year anniversary of the mass shooting.
The nightclub was the target of the deadliest terrorist attack in recent U.S. history on June 12, 2016, in which 49 people were killed and more than 50 others were injured.
He was shot and killed by Orlando Police after a three-hour standoff.
A worker at Pulse found the piece of luggage in front of the fence that surrounds the building and reported it to the Orlando Fire Department.
Police closed both directions of South Orange Avenue and Kaley Street off in the area.
Businesses were also evacuated between West Kaley Street and East Harding Street on South Orange.
The roads reopened at around 10am (local time) after the area was deemed safe.
The bomb sqaud were able to determine that it was not a threat after an X-ray of the bag.
