LOS ANGELES (AP) — Police say they have locked down the Los Angeles Times building in downtown LA after receiving reports of a possible gunman inside.

Detective Gus Villanueva says a radio call went out at 7:26 p.m. Friday night saying a text message sent from inside the building said there may be someone "about to start shooting," but police have not verified that there is an armed person inside or any shots have been fired.

Surrounding streets have been closed.

The Times says on its website that a woman reported that her co-worker had shown her a bag of bullets and said he was depressed.
