    A lockdown of LAPD headquarters in downtown Los Angeles prompted by the discovery of a suspicious white powder and threatening note was called off after two hours on Thursday.

    The ten-story building, located on 1st Street, was locked down and the first floor evacuated at about 11 a.m. Thursday after police discovered a powdery white substance in an envelope, which also contained a note reading "you all deserve to die,"  police said. 

    The envelope was found on the P-1 Level, just below the ground level, in an area to the public.
