Time Warner Center, including CNN, evacuated due to suspicious device
The device was constructed with a pipe and wires. Law enforcement authorities are treating the device as a real explosive.
The device was discovered in the building's mail room, the source said.
The building's evacuation included offices for WarnerMedia and other Turner-owned properties like TNT, as well as a shopping mall and a Whole Foods grocery store located in the basement level.
Suspicious packages were also sent to former President Obama, The Clinton home in Chappaqua, Representative Maxine Waters, former Attorney General Eric Holder and Democratic donor George Soros.
Time Warner Center – where CNN's New York offices are located – was just evacuated. The alarm went off as @jimsciutto and @PoppyHarlowCNN were on air reporting the packages sent to the Clintons and Obamas. @ShimonPro reporting it was over "a suspicious package." pic.twitter.com/EYBsytil0o— ?andrew?kaczynski?
