SAN FRANCISCO (KTVU/BCN) - A bomb-threat situation at DNA Lounge in San Francisco's South of Market Neighborhood was given the all clear as of 6:30 p.m. on Friday according to San Francisco Police Department.
SFPD Sgt. Michael Andraychak tweeted that nothing hazardous was found and there was no suspect at the scene of the threat at 11th near Folsom streets, after the building was searched.
According to San Francisco Police Sgt. Michael Andraychak, SFPD received a call at 3:30 p.m. from an unidentified male who made a bomb threat against "a business" at the location. The caller claimed to be inside the business, armed with a gun and a bomb.
Residents were asked to avoid the area while the business was evacuated and neighboring businesses were told to "shelter-in-place".
Roadways around 11th and Folsom streets were closed due to the threat, police said on Twitter at 4:45 p.m. Streets were said to be reopening shortly after the all-clear was given at around 6:30 p.m.
Around 5:22 p.m. the tactical team could be seen entering the DNA Lounge, a nightclub and bar, after already having guns drawn and at least one bomb-sniffing dog on site.
Andraychak said negotiators with the SFPD Hostage Crisis Negotiation Team, the Tactical Unit, Bomb Squad, Specialist Team, and Explosive Detection K9s, along with Southern Police Station personnel and paramedics were all at the scene.
The negotiators were attempting to establish contact with the subject, according to Andraychak.
A one-block perimeter was set up at the scene and impacted traffic for some time.
