TACOMA, Wash. -- Tacoma police bomb squad blew up what they believed to be suspicious package outside a Planned Parenthood Clinic Thursday night.

The package turned out to be a backpack containing clothing items, according to Tacoma police spokeswoman Loretta Cool.
 
Officers were notified and the clinic, located at 813 Martin Luther King Way Jr. Way, was evacuated after employees noticed what appeared to be a backpack outside just before 5 p.m. 
 
Tacoma police say that they took extra precaution in light of the events this week in Boston.
