An Internal Revenue Service building in Memphis, Tennessee has been evacuated over reports of a possible active shooter situation.

According to Fox 3, police have responded to unconfirmed reports of  shots being fired inside of the building, which lies on Getwell Road.

According to Ian Ripple of ABC24 Memphis, a heavy police presence was seen at the IRS building.

Employees were seen congregating in the building’s parking lot, with the building’s alarm sounding off in the distance.

Just before 6pm, the Memphis Police Department put out a statement saying that their officers were responding to "several calls regarding various activities that are reportedly occurring within the City of Memphis," but stressed that "no incident has occurred that would cause harm to the public."

"If any incident is found to be true and could affect the public, we will advise.

"As always, we will continuously provide information to the public on our social media platforms. We will also work with out media partners. We encourage community members to remain alert and vigilant; however also remain calm until official notification has been made by a law enforcement agency.

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
