A bomb threat Tuesday evening against a Los Angeles television station turned out to be a hoax, reports Deadline.com. The threat was made against KTLA-TV, a Tribune Broadcasting-owned CW affiliate.

Los Angeles police received a call at 6:15 p.m., with the caller telling officers that he was "going to detonate" three devices in the station’s building. Employees were evacuated, and a bomb squad and dogs searched the building, but nothing suspicious was found.

Those evacuated included reporters and producers working on the station’s 10 p.m. newscast, as well as employees on syndicated shows such as "Judge Judy," the story says. An all-clear was given at about 8:30 p.m.
