The 7-Eleven convenience store at 2617 P St. NW was closed for three hours on Saturday afternoon, July 6, as store managers reported two envelopes received by U.S. Mail that appeared to be leaking a powdery substance.

Franchise owner Girma Hailu said he threw the mail onto the sidewalk near the entrance to the store.

D.C. Fire & EMS units responded, as did the Metropolitan Police Department. The block was closed to traffic and the store evacuated briefly. No injuries were reported.

Later, MPD’s Second District Cmdr. Duncan Bedlion told The Georgetowner: “The package was cleared as having nothing hazardous/dangerous in it.”
