The King County Courthouse was evacuated Friday afternoon after courthouse staff received a threatening phone call around 1:15 p.m.

The Seattle Police Department's Arson and Bomb Squad responded to the call, evcuated the building and investigated the situation.

After a couple of hours, police deemed the building safe and let people back in, but by that time most people had left for the weekend.

KING 5's Elisa Hahn tweeted updates from the scene:
