SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – The San Francisco Superior Court building in the city’s Civic Center neighborhood was briefly evacuated Tuesday afternoon, a sheriff’s spokeswoman said.

Alarms went off at the courthouse, located at 400 McAllister St., just before 3 p.m., sheriff’s spokeswoman Susan Fahey said.

Sheriff’s officials were working to figure out if something happened to set off the alarms or if the warning system malfunctioned, Fahey said.
