Early in the evening, the lock was removed, and employees were warned that there was no immediate danger or threat.
Netflix's headquarters was locked against a shooter's announcement on Thursday afternoon.
Several posts appeared in social media, claiming someone had a gun in front of the building. According to sources close to the situation, employees are told to stay in place and stay away from the windows. One of the buildings has been evacuated, according to sources.
Los Angeles police say the suspect who is now in custody has said he has a gun, but he does not have a weapon that has been found and no injuries are reported.
The lock was lifted a few hours later. There is no imminent danger or threat to our employees. Feel free to share this information with your loved ones. "
They confirmed that the officers were evacuated on the other side of the street. Netflix PR representative Don Halcomb made a statement to the media. "We've already gotten everything clear from the LAPD, and there's never been a firearm on the property."
