NEW YORK, NY (WJHL) — New York City’s Time Warner Center, the building that houses CNN’s Manhattan headquarters, was partially evacuated Thursday for about an hour as police investigated a “pair of unattended packages” found at the building, the NYPD said.

Thursday night’s evacuation comes a day after a bomb was mailed to CNN, addressed to former CIA director John Brennan. 

At 8:39 p.m., NYPD spokesman J. Peter Donald tweeted the bomb squad had declared “all clear” on the packages. The mall on those floors was being re-opened by then, he tweeted. 

The NYPD told CBS News that the bomb squad reported to a suspicious package on the third floor, and they evacuated that floor and the second floor.
