The Berkeley bomb squad is on its way to Cragmont Elementary School to investigate a suspicious package.

As a precaution, the school has been evacuated and nearby streets have been closed, according to Sgt. Mary Kusmiss of the Berkeley Police Department.

Berkeleyside will have more information as it becomes available.
