Police have closed Marina Blvd. between Buchanana and Laguna Streets as they investigate a report of a suspicious package on a Muni bus.
The bus, which has been evacuated, is outside the Safeway parking lot on Marina Blvd. According to ABC7, several businesses in the area, including the grocery store, have also been cleared of people while SFPD's bomb-disposal team is en route to the scene.
