DALLAS (AP) - Some downtown Dallas streets have been closed as police investigate reports of gunfire and a barricaded person.

Sr. Cpl. Melinda Gutierrez says nobody has been hurt as police initially responded to an "active shooter" call from an apartment complex around 10 a.m. CDT Tuesday. Gutierrez had no immediate information whether any shots were fired. Nobody has been arrested.

Police later characterized the incident as involving a barricaded individual. Further details on the person weren't immediately released.

Some nearby well-known Dallas attractions were locked down, as a precaution - including the Perot Museum of Nature and Science and the Dallas World Aquarium.

Police cars blocked off roads in the Victory Park area near the W Hotel and close to the American Airlines Center sports venue.
