ATLANTA - Police closed streets and sidewalks around CNN Center in downtown Atlanta as they investigated a chemical bomb threat, but found no such device in a search of the complex.

Atlanta police spokeswoman K.Y. Jones tells The Associated Press that no chemical was located in the Friday morning scare. She said shortly after 6 a.m. that all streets in the area were open again.

Police said a caller claimed to have planted a chemical bomb at the center.

Police had closed streets and sidewalks to vehicles and pedestrians on the block to the north of the center, and on the block to the west of the center.

The complex is home to the Cable News Network and several restaurants and shops. The area is just south of Centennial Olympic Park.
