The call was received at about 2:15 p.m. at the front desk of the building at 3200 California St., center spokesman Nathaniel Bergson-Michelson said.

Police spokesman Sgt. Mike Andraychak said the call involved some sort of threat but did not get into specifics.

The building was evacuated and surrounding sidewalks were closed but no streets were closed, Andraychak said.

The evacuation remained in effect as of 4:15 p.m., Bergson-Michelson said.
