False alarm brings out the cops to the Echo Park Citibank

Officers with guns drawn were seen near the Echo Park branch of Citibank this afternoon as a police helicopter hovered overhead, raising fears that the Sunset Boulevard branch was being held up. But an officer at the Rampart Division station said that the incident at about 4 P.M. turned out to have been triggered by a  false alarm, and no crime had taken place.
