CAA Evacuates Building Over Security Threat

Employees at CAA headquarters in Century City were forced to evacuate Thursday over a security threat, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.

Agents and employees were instructed to leave the offices at 2000 Avenue of the Stars in Century City for an evacuation that occurred out of “an abundance of caution,” according to a note sent to employees, while the threat was being investigated. Sources note that SWAT officers were present at the building, as well as at least one bomb-sniffing dog.
