Oh no! This is so scary!
The CNN building on Sunset Blvd is on lockdown, after a man called the cops 24 hours ago, warning them that his son threatened to open fire on the employees there!
According to a memo sent out today by the building's management, the LAPD is currently on high alert, and looking for a "disheveled looking, transient man [who] has made threats to harm himself and as many other people as possible. This man has an arrest history, history of violence, and is considered armed and dangerous."
Additional security has been hired to patrol the area.
Hopefully, this is some sort of sick joke, and no one is any serious danger, but we keep our fingers crossed that this man is found and taken into custody.
Stay safe, everyone. You're in our thoughts.
