MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - Memphis police shut down part of Poplar Avenue after a bomb threat was called into a Midtown abortion clinic Wednesday evening. 

Memphis Center for Reproductive Health at 1462 Poplar Avenue was immediately evacuated. The perimeter, parking lot and all vehicles were cleared.

After investigating for several hours, Memphis police and the FBI said there was no bomb.  

An abortion provider in Witchita, Kansas, was recently murdered, leading authorities to take similar threats very seriously.
