Windows were shattered as shots were fired in to building near 600 S. Olive St. in Downtown around 2:40 p.m. on Thursday, according to LAPD Officer Wendy Reyes.

Hill Street was closed southbound between 6th and 7th Street to even pedestrian traffic as the LAPD searched for the gunman and possible victims.
