Police in Dearborn, MI evacuated guests attending a Muslim American conference after receiving reports of a pressure cooker found on the second floor, reports Arab American News.

Several floors of the Adoba Hotel where the conference was held were also evacuated as a precaution. Police later determined the pressure cooker was not an explosive device.

The conference was organized by the Universal Muslim Association of America and people attended from around the country and Canada attended.

“Our investigation is ongoing and we do not have a suspect or a motive at this time,” Dearborn Police Chief Ronald Haddad said.

But members of the Council on American Islamic Relations said they would not be surprised to learn the pressure cooker was left there to disrupt the conference.

The incident follows the Boston Marathon Bombing in which a pressure cooker was used in the making of the bomb.
