A suspicious letter at a building in downtown Greenville prompted a lockdown Friday afternoon.

Police say the letter with a white powder substance was mailed to a business inside One Liberty Square.

The entire building has been shut down and Elford Street remains closed.

No one was allowed out of the building at the time.  Officials now say they are letting people out to go home.

7 On Your Side crews in the area say hazmat officials are on the scene.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and South Carolina Law Enforcement Division are investigating.
