Netflix started then ended a "active shooter" lockdown over the course of a few hours Thursday night at its Los Angeles office.

This comes after several social media posts surfaced saying as much and the LAPD arresting somebody who allegedly had a gun outside the building, with the police later saying the suspect didn't have a gun.

Employees were evacuated across the street with Netflix giving them the following statement from a parking lot at Sunset and Bronson in LA: "We received a tip about a potential law enforcement incident. Police are conducting a sweep of the lot out of an abundance of caution. There is no immediate danger or threat to our employees. Feel free to share this information with your loved ones."

News organization KTLA (which is in the adjacent lot) first ran the report and also locked its offices down. They posted a video showing about a dozen officers in the immediate area because the suspect had a "deadly weapon".

This is a developing story. Stay tuned for more as we hear it.
