LAS VEGAS — The FBI says a package containing a toxic substance found at a Las Vegas motel does not appear to be a targeted attack.
Authorities say preliminary tests indicate the package found at the Extended Stay America Motel Thursday contained the toxin ricin. Seven people, three motel employees, three police officers and another person were taken to hospitals. All were reported in good condition.
FBI spokesman Richard Kolko in Washington says the event does not appear to be terrorism related. He says the FBI is assisting local police in the investigation.
