Dallas police say an office building is safe following reports of a person with a gun, but have not confirmed that any shots were fired or said if anyone was injured or killed.

Police said on Twitter that the building was "made safe" at 12:49 p.m. Monday. Police say they are still in the early stages of investigations.

Dallas-based WFAA reported two people have been shot. The two were shot at a North Dallas office building, according to WFAA. 

Television footage showed a heavy police response, including a SWAT team, at the office building near a multi-level highway interchange known as the High Five. A broken window could be seen on one of the upper floors of the mirrored tower.

Bailee Christian told KXAS-TV that she heard two gunshots - one while she was in the building and the other after she had been evacuated from her office. She says: "It was very intense in the moment, very scary."

She said one of the police officers evacuating them had a small amount of blood on his arm, appearing to have a minor injury.

Police have said one officer was injured by debris.
