BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) (UPDATED 3:30 p.m.) A few windows on the east side of TD Garden looked like spider webs with second story glass shattered in multiple spots along the building's face towards the Zakim Bridge.

Boston Police officers initially responded to the scene on reports of possible gunfire but ballistic teams still investigating on scene have not confirmed shots were fired at the venue.

Police confirm to WBZ NewsRadio that dispatch received a call reporting potential shots fired at 10:30 a.m. in the morning.

WBZ's Mike Macklin spoke to Bill Cleary who owns an insurance company right across Route 93 from the Garden.

"We were all up in the office just working. People heard helicopters and saw online and found out what was going on and sent an email to all of us saying 'you might want to stay in the building for a while.' It makes no sense to me," Cleary said.

"My first thought is rather blasphemous that somebody would do something to such an iconic building. For you guys to be here talking about somebody shooting the windows out— it's idiotic," a resident named Shaun said.

Whatever it was, it shattered three large panes of glass on 100 Legends Way. The TD Garden says in a statement that events planned at the venue will continue as scheduled.

Police say no one was injured in the incident.
