The Miami-Dade Police Department's bomb squad detonated a suspicious package near the Overtown Transit Village Metrorail station.

The investigation forced transit officials to shut down train service to the station at Northwest 1st Avenue and 8th Street Monday morning.

Passengers were bused between Government Center and Culmer stations.

The Metrorail service returned to normal about an hour later.
