(Updated at 1:10 p.m.) Police investigated a bomb threat at the WJLA (ABC 7) building (1100 Wilson Blvd) in Rosslyn this afternoon.

Initial reports suggest the threat was non-specific. Pedestrian traffic was still allowed in and out of the building as normal as police and building employees searched in and around the building. A police dog could be seen sniffing around news vans at the station’s parking lot.

Police are in the process of clearing the scene. No threats were found, according to Arlington police spokeswoman Det. Crystal Nosal.

    Here’s what the HR director sent to all WJLA/Allbritton employees just now: “Please be advised the front desk received a non-specific threat to the station. As a matter of precaution the Arlington County Police have been notified and will do a quick walk-around of the Station. I will keep you posted.

      I think you meant ‘queso’. Al Queso is retaliating. It’s part of the expansion of the Chipotle across the street. Tex-Mex foods across the United States are rising up against us!
