    Police have cleared the scene of an alleged bomb threat Friday at a business in San Francisco's South of Market neighborhood.

    Around 3:30 p.m., police received a call from a male, saying he was inside a building near 11th and Harrison streets, armed with a gun and a bomb, according to police spokesman Sgt. Michael Andraychak.

    Upon arrival, officers located the building where the suspect was allegedly at and evacuated it. The building is reportedly at 375 11th Street, where the DNA Lounge nightclub is located.

    Officers also ordered neighboring buildings to shelter in place, Andraychak said.

    Surrounding streets were closed, which featured a heavy police presence in the area, including a bomb squad, police bomb dogs, a crisis hostage negotiation team and fire medical personnel, according to Andraychak.

    The hostage negotiation team was also called to assist and make contact with the suspect, Andraychak said.

    Police cleared the scene shortly after 6:40 p.m.
