D.C. police arrived at a Dupont Circle office building Wednesday afternoon in response to a report of a shooting, but said they found no signs that a gun had been discharged.

The call, which came in after 3 p.m., sent dozens of officers racing to the 1300 block of Connecticut Avenue NW. Police were searching the building floor by floor, but around 4:45 p.m., a D.C. police spokesman said no victim or gunman had been located.

Several roads were blocked at the popular and often crowded area.
