Police spokeswoman Sgt. Eren Stephens says a call came in to authorities on the U.S. side of the bridge "pertaining to a bomb on the bridge."

Stephens says the call came about 7:20 p.m. EDT and prompted authorities in Detroit and Windsor, Ontario, to halt all truck and car traffic across the bridge.

So far, there's no report of the finding of any bomb.
