MCLEAN, Va. (WJZ) —  The northern Virginia office building that houses USA Today was evacuated for several hours Wednesday for what police said was an unsubstantiated report of an armed man.

Fairfax County Police originally responded to the report earlier Wednesday afternoon:

The building was evacuated, but Fairfax County Police confirmed that there is no evidence of injuries or violence at this time.

During the incident, the department set up a reunification center for those who had evacuated, but that center was no longer active once the threat had been determined to be a mistake, police said.
