It’s been anything but a happy Valentine’s Day for those who work at Netflix. On Thursday afternoon, the Los Angeles headquarters was put on lockdown and evacuated amid reports of a shooter.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, several posts on social media had surfaced reporting that they had seen a suspect on the roof of the building with an undisclosed weapon.

“We received a tip about a potential law enforcement incident,” Netflix said in a statement. “Police are conducting a sweep of the lot out of an abundance of caution. There is no immediate danger or threat to our employees.”

Following the evacuation, the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to Variety that a suspect is currently being held in custody off site and that he was carrying no weapon.
