LOCKDOWN Time Warner Center in New York was evacuated after a bomb scare

CNN Time Warner Center New York evacuated

A building in New York City that includes CNN was evacuated because of a phoned-in bomb threat Thursday night that turned out to be unsubstantiated, according to police and a reporter at the network. It appears that tweet was made at around 10:08 p.m., which would make it after police said they received the 911 call.

TheWrap's Jon Levine shared a clip of the moment Lemon's program abruptly went to break due to the threat.

"Due to a police investigation at Columbus Circle, West 58th Street between 8th and 9th Avenue is closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic". He said that the bomb squad had arrived to investigate the matter.

Lemon said he was in the middle of preparations for his show when the order to evacuate was issued.

Don Lemon, who was on the air when the threat forced the abrupt end of his show, also tweeted out the news.




Communications tweeted that a bomb threat was phoned into the company's NY office. A "comprehensive sweep search" of CNN offices was conducted, police said.

"The Fake News hates me saying that they are the Enemy of the People only because they know it's TRUE", he tweeted in August.

In October, the building was partially evacuated after a suspicious package containing a crude pipe bomb was delivered to the company, addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan.

Reacting to the threat, CNN's Chris Cuomo said that everyone was "fine" despite the evacuation.
