Some horrible news was just reported out of Hollywood. According to reports, the Netflix headquarters and KTLA studio were on lockdown after reports emerged of a suspect with a “deadly weapon.”
Initial reports confirmed that no one was able to get in or out of the building and that a person with a “deadly weapon” caused the lockdown.
The Los Angeles Police Department responded to emergency calls at the Sunset Bronson Studios. Around an hour after the news was reported, the department confirmed that they had one suspect in custody.
KTLA reported, “Los Angeles Police Department Officer Tony Im said the department received ‘second hand’ information about a person who was armed. Later, Im said a person was in custody. He wasn’t sure where the suspect was detained, but said police did a ‘followup’ several blocks away in the 5600 block of Franklin Avenue.”
KTLA was unclear whether or not the suspect was armed when they were taken into custody.
Netflix officials said that they had “received a tip about a potential law enforcement incident.” They said that police did a sweep and that none of the employees are in immediate danger.
Witnesses said that at least a dozen LAPD officers were seen near the entrance of the building, while people were encouraged to get indoors and away from windows as a measure of precaution. However, the Netflix employees were told to evacuate. According to reports, the gunman was initially on top of the building.
This is a developing story and details are still unclear. We will continue to update when more information is made available. Meanwhile, pray for everyone who was involved in the situation.
