Dallas, Texas - Dallas police department has responded to a possible active shooter at an office building on Monday.

Officers initially responded near the High Five at around 10:30 AM for a report of shots fired. A large police presence including the SWAT team cleared out the building and the suspect has been "subdued."

At least two people are confirmed to have been shot, with eyewitness reports of an injured officer.

“As we were walking out, there was a police officer holding his shield and he was bleeding down his arm,” a woman told CBS DFW.

A woman who works in the office told Fox 4, “At the same time the shots happened my boss directed everybody to get in the corner and get down low. People started screaming. SWAT came in and told everybody to get out. They had guns pointed. Everybody had to come out of our office with our hands up and come down 10 flights of stairs.”

Pictures from the scene show a window broken out on one of the upper floors.

One witness told CNN that there had been a recent police raid on that office. “There was a raid last week on that floor specifically — I don’t know what it was for. But it was 30-40 FBI people that came through– they had FBI on their jackets and stuff. It was crazy. That was just last week. I don’t know if it's related. It’s some kind of financial or investment company on that floor.”

UPDATE: Incident details released from Dallas PD HERE.

The scene is still active at this time.
