A citywide tactical alert issued due to an illegal demonstration outside Los Angeles City Hall was canceled early Tuesday morning. 

Pro-Palestinian protesters had set up an encampment consisting of about 20 tents near the corner of First and Spring streets around 9 p.m. Monday. 

Around an hour and a half later, LAPD confirmed to KTLA that they had issued a citywide tactical alert and officers converged on the area.

The citywide tactical alert was canceled around 2 a.m. Tuesday morning, LAPD said. 

There was no immediate word on whether any arrests were made.
