DETROIT (WXYZ) - Detroit Police are confirming to 7 Action News that a bomb threat was made against Comerica Park on Tuesday night.
According to police spokesperson Sergeant Eren Stephens the threat was called into 911 at 8:00 p.m.
Stephens says the Inspector for Detroit's Homeland Security Don Johnson and other Detroit Police officers did assist at the park, but the bomb squad was not dispatched to the scene and the game went on.
This is the third high profile bomb threat made in just the last five days.
On Monday a threat closed the Ambassador Bridge for five hours. Last week a similar threat closed the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel for four and a half hours.
Both threats were later determined to be hoaxes. Both cases are still under investigation.
