D.C. Fire and EMS crowded on the corner of 4th and I Streets, SW, across from Amidon-Bowen Elementary, after an envelope containing white powder was reported.

D.C. police officers responded to two reports of suspicious white powder. One incident was at Amidon-Bowen Elementary in southwest; the second was at Italian restaurant Bibiana on New York Avenue, near 12th Street, in northwest.

According to NBC Washington, the chef at Bibiana opened an envelope that was reportedly sent from Texas; the envelope contained an unknown white powder.

Police have blocked off H Street. The investigation at Bibiana is still on going.

At Amidon-Bowen Elementary, at least a dozen marked and unmarked D.C. police vehicles, as well as half a dozen fire and EMS engines crowded on the corner of 4th and I Streets, SW, across from the school this morning.

A Hazmat team searched the school building and quarantined two officers who found an envelope with white powder inside, according to scanner reports.

These incidents come a day after a white powder substance was discovered at Oyster-Adams Elementary, on the 2800 block of Calvert Street, NW. The white powder turned out to be flour.
