7:36 am
property here, and have this block of road closed off as the bomb squad investigators a possible explosive device on th first floor of this buildinguild here as it remains evacuated an woman's live hangs in thehang balance over gw hospital. hospi guys, that's what we know.eno >> i think that's incredibly s d sad. so you're waiting though to gett the other picture with him h saying there's a devise thereth are right? do you expect wordxt this morning soon, bob? soo b >> reporter: we're hoping soo because we thought for while you see people here are still thetil older folks who are allowed toow stay in the lobby as they hady d moved everybody out of theev building now they're being taket away from the building.ui we're hoping to find out soon s whether his claims of a bomb in the building are true or not.. initially they were able toy th clear his apartment but he ise s the one who apparently istly telling investigators that he ih rigged this building in some wae and that's why they've evacuated people and either his wi
