Iowa City police are investigating possible gunshots heard inside the Ecumenical Towers early Monday.

Iowa City police Sgt. Denise Brotherton said officers are looking into a report of “loud banging” and “possible gunshots” thought to have occurred at the Ecumenical Towers, 320 E. Washington St., around 6 a.m.

Brotherton said no one was hurt in the incident, and there is no indication anyone was targeted.

While the incident remains under investigation, she said, nothing occurred outside the towers and there is no public-safety threat.

The investigation is ongoing, but police have selected a person of interest, she said.

Officers have not arrested anyone related to the incident.
