Bomb threat called in to Hall of Justice

A shelter-in-place order was issued at the Hall of Justice Thursday afternoon after a bomb threat was reportedly called in to the building.

Nancy Crowley, a spokesperson for the Sheriff’s Department, said the threat was received around 2 p.m.

Those inside the building at Seventh and Bryant streets are being allowed to leave but no one was allowed to enter while sheriff’s deputies and police K-9 units searched the area, Crowley said.

Some buses are being rerouted around the area, according to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency.

The shelter-in-place order was lifted shortly after 3:30 p.m.
