Police raid LA Times building after threat reports

ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES  — Police have taken a man into custody inside the Los Angeles Times building after reports of a shooting threat.

The Times reports that the man in his 20s was detained by police Friday night, less than an hour after the threat reports. The man does not work for the newspaper but is connected to Vxi Global Solutions, which rents in the building.

Detective Gus Villanueva tells The Associated Press that a radio call went out at 7:26 p.m. saying a text message sent from inside the building said there may be someone “about to start shooting.”

Police have not verified whether a gun was recovered or any shots were fired.

The Times says a woman reported that her co-worker had shown her a bag of bullets and said he was depressed.
