A suspicious letter caused a street closure in downtown D.C. Monday evening.

A letter with an unknown substance arrived at Amorini Panini in Northwest about 5:45 p.m., according to D.C. fire. F Street was closed between Ninth and 10th streets.

A hazmat team responded, and the letter was taken to a lab for further analysis.

No one was hospitalized. The scene has since been cleared.

The FBI is investigating.
