An office building on Hollywood's Walk of Fame was evacuated this afternoon after suspicious items were found inside. At 2 p.m., the LAPD received a call about suspicious items found inside an inactive safe deposit box, apparently inside a bank. That prompted police to evacuate the building, which shares ground floor retail with Hooters and American Apparel, as the bomb squad was called. LAPD Officer Bruce Borihanh said there were no threats associated with the event. As of 3:45 p.m., the scene was not cleared, Borihanh said.
