Cops: 2 people shot in downtown Chicago high-rise

Associated Press

CHICAGO (AP) — Chicago police say two people have been shot inside a downtown high-rise office building.

Police spokesman Martin Maloney says two people were shot Thursday morning. No other details were immediately released, but an officer came out of the building in the city's business district saying the situation was contained around 10:40 a.m.

A worker in the building says building security sent an email around 10 a.m. saying there was a security situation in the lobby and asking them to stay at their desks.

Crime scene tape is now cordoning off the Bank of America building, where shooting occurred. Dozens of workers from other buildings in the area are gathering outside.
