Man under evaluation for alleged gun threat locking down L.A. Times building
The man, whose identity has not been released, was taken into custody early Friday evening after he allegedly told witnesses he was depressed and did not mind killing, according to the newspaper.
Police responded to the incident and put parts of the building on lockdown after he allegedly threatened to open fire on the third floor.
The department’s mental evaluation unit is in charge of the case and will not release information on the incident or the man’s identity until Monday, at the earliest, according to Eisenman.
