A CBS affiliate in Albuquerque canceled his planned evening news on Sunday after an “intruder” in the building and ran on the station news is set.

KRQE-TV was forced off the air for about 90 minutes as police investigated the situation.

A man who believed in his 20s and wearing a backpack, allegedly walked into the newsroom. He was escorted out of the building, but later, The Seattle Times reported, and went on the set of the journal.

“Sunday evening an unauthorized person in the KRQE building and the police were called,” the station said in a statement.

“Our broadcast activities had to cease, while the police searched the building. An hour and a half later by the police gave us the road and we were able to get our broadcast operations.”

Employees were later allowed to re-enter the premises and at 11:00 a.m., but the man who entered was not found.

“Everyone at KRQE is safe,” Madeline Schmitt, a reporter with the station, tweeted. “We don’t go on air tonight at 9 and 10 due to a situation that involved the police. I will defer further comment on my managers-but know that we are all safe. Many thanks to the hard work of @ABQPOLICE!”

The cancellation of Sunday’s news came just days after a gunman killed five people after opening fire in the Capital Newspaper, a newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland.
