NEW ORLEANS - The NOPD has given an all clear at the Pan-American Life building downtown.
Police officers began to amass at the building and in the attached parking garage around 8 a.m.
Initial reports indicated a possible shooting in the parking garage, but officers were able to determine that was a misunderstanding.
Construction workers on the scene were using loud construction equipment that someone mistook for gunfire and reported to the NOPD.
The NOPD reports that there is no threat to the public, and the scene is secured.
Earlier today, NOPD officers responded to a call for service at the Pan Am Building. Upon arrival it was determined that noise from nearby construction prompted the call to 911.
No gunshots were ever fired.
And at not time was anyone in danger.
