The Louisville Metro Police Department has given an all-clear after an hourlong block closure to search for a possible armed person in downtown Louisville. 

Police cordoned off an area on South Fifth Street, between Muhammad Ali and West Chestnut streets, from about noon to 1 p.m. after receiving reports of a person with a gun, and evacuating the block.

WHAS-TV reports that 53-year-old Terona Hall is charged with robbery, wanton endangerment and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.

Police said there were no shots fired, although one witness reported hearing what sounded like a gunshot.

Taylor Marshall said she was coming downtown for a job interview around noon when she heard a gunshot. She spoke to a WFPL reporter while standing by the cordoned-off area on Chestnut Street, where her car was parked, inside the contained area.
