A LEXINGTON RV bomb threat has sparked panic as cops have evacuated the downtown area of the Kentucky city just one week after the frightening Nashville explosion.
Multiple reports of a bomb threat were shared to Twitter on New Years Eve – with one video reportedly showing a police K9 unit searching an RV in the Kentucky city.
Lexington Police put out a warning on at around 8.30pm and revealed they were "working on an incident in the area of Short Street and Market."
They explained: "Pedestrians and motorists are asked to avoid the area. We will post updates when more information is available."
Fifteen minutes later they urged people to avoid the downtown area.
"Traffic is shut down and the area of Vine to Third Street and Broadway to Martin Luther King Blvd is being evacuated," the tweet read.
Video shared to Twitter appears to show a bomb-sniffing dog near the reportedly suspicious RV.
