The hilltop Getty Center museum in Brentwood was evacuated Tuesday afternoon after a bomb threat was phoned in.

LAPD Officer Tony Im told LAist that someone called the museum at 2:51 p.m. and stated that there was a bomb and to get out before disconnecting the phone. The museum was then evacuated. LAPD officers are currently investigating on the scene— according to Im they have yet to find anything suspicious. KTLA reports that no one is being allowed to enter the museum grounds.
