MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minneapolis police say they are checking a report of shots fired at a downtown office building.

Sergeant Steve McCarty says the call came Friday morning.

McCarty says officers are inside the building checking, but haven't found anything yet. Several squad cars were on the scene.

The 11-story building formerly known as Retek on the Mall sits on a busy corner of downtown Minneapolis, bordered on one side by the pedestrian Nicollet Mall. It's across the street from Target's main headquarters, and last March the retailing giant signed a lease to take over all of its office space, according to the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal.

A flagship Target store is immediately across the street.
