News On 6 is getting a look at the suspicious package that caused a scare on the University of Oklahoma campus Tuesday night. 

Norman's bomb squad sent its robot to examine the suspicious device, which the university says turned out to be a commercial construction electrical fuse.

Someone called OU's Police Department Tuesday night around 7:30 p.m. about a suspicious device on campus near Page Street and Trout Avenue.

OU said The Norman Police Department Hazardous Device Unit investigated for about two hours.

The team even did an x-ray, which gave them a clear view inside the device and showed it was not a threat.

OU said the bomb squad gave the all clear around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday.
