As they investigated an incident that momentarily forced the evacuation of Parliament Hill, Ottawa Police said they had identified two persons of interest but no public safety concerns.
According to a news release, police got information about a possible danger near the parliamentary precinct on Saturday, causing them to shut certain nearby routes to vehicle and pedestrian traffic.
The nature of the threat has not been revealed.
The Parliamentary Protective Service also ordered an evacuation of Parliament Hill, issuing an alert to all Parliamentarians and staff and noting all buildings in the precinct were to be under shelter-in-place orders until further notice.
Later in the afternoon, police tweeted the area was open again to the public.
The force said in the release it had not identified a public safety threat stemming from the incident, but said it identified two people and two vehicles of interest, and that they were still investigating.
