Police are reporting that no threat was found at a business in San Francisco's South of Market neighborhood.

Around 3:30 p.m., police received a call from a male, saying he was inside a building near 11th and Harrison streets, armed with a gun and a bomb, according to police spokesman Sgt. Michael Andraychak.

Upon arrival, officers located the building where the suspect was allegedly at and evacuated it. The building is reportedly at 375 11th Street, where the DNA Lounge nightclub is located.

Officers also ordered neighboring buildings to shelter in place, Andraychak said.

Surrounding streets were closed and there was a heavy police presence in the area, including a bomb squad, police bomb dogs, a crisis hostage negotiation team and fire medical personnel, according to Andraychak.

The hostage negotiation team was currently trying to make contact with the suspect, Andraychak said.

As of 5:40 p.m., officers could be observed inside DNA Lounge via the venue's security cameras - which are publicly available as a live webcast at www.dnalounge.com.

Police gave the all clear at around 6:30 p.m. and said streets would reopen shortly.
