UPDATE: Lockdown lifted at SF’s Hall of Justice

A lockdown at San Francisco’s Hall of Justice ended quickly Thursday afternoon after sheriff’s officials determined that all inmates were accounted for.

The lockdown began some time after 2 p.m. after sheriff’s deputies received a report of a suspicious person in the building.

San Francisco District Attorney’s Office spokesperson Max Szabo wrote on Twitter that the incident involved a “female inmate allegedly loose inside the HOJ.”

However, sheriff’s officials said they have since determined that all inmates are accounted for.
