WARREN COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A portion of U.S. Highway 61 in Vicksburg has reopened, after being closed earlier Tuesday afternoon when law-enforcement officers thought an explosive device may be aboard a charter bus.

The white bus was pulled onto the shoulder of the highway, and barricades were put up to close the roadway from about four miles north of River Region Medical Center up to Highway 3.

Officers searched the bus, but no explosives were found.
