Posted: Updated:

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The bomb squad and police shut down part of Trade and Tryon Streets Saturday afternoon.

A bomb threat had to be checked out at the Bank of America building.

It turned out to be nothing, but police mobilized a large response.

The threat comes just a few days before several groups plan to protest outside the BofA shareholders meeting. The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday.

The city manager has already declared the protest an extraordinary event, with extra protections in place.
