At approximately 7:24 p.m., a suspicious package outside the CNN building at Sunset and Vine was reported to the LAPD prompting the closure of surrounding streets and nearby stores such as Amoeba Records. Sunset was shut down between Wilcox and Ivar and Cahunega from Selma to De Longpre. Word spread on Twitter that the incident was a "bomb threat," but officials with LAPD Media Relations emphasized it was a suspicious package and no threat had been made.
