Detroit bomb squad enters Ford Field after dog 'hits' on something in sweep before Taylor Swift show

DETROIT (WXYZ) - Detroit Police now tell 7 Action News that during a routine sweep of Ford Field ahead of Saturday night's Taylor Swift concert, a bomb-sniffing dog hit on a suspicious scent.

A second dog was called in and the Detroit Police Bomb Squad entered Ford Field. It was determined that the "hit" may have been from residue from pyrotechnics that would be used during the concert.

At the same time as this development, a training exercise was under way at Comerica Park and was not related.

No suspicious packages have been found and the area is safe.
