FORT HOOD, TX — The Fort Hood Post Exchange (PX) was temporarily evacuated on Christmas Eve due to a suspicious package.

The building was evacuated Thursday afternoon "out of an abundance of caution," according to the Fort Hood DES Law Enforcement Division.

Shortly after, authorities gave the all clear, and shoppers were allowed to re-enter the PX.
