    Police and federal agents Saturday investigated a photo posted online by an ISIS-supporting group that showed an explosion at a downtown Los Angeles high-rise.

    The photoshopped image shows a blast at the top of the AON Center, located at 707 Wilshire Blvd., with a man in a uniform with his face hidden, carrying an ISIS flag. The 62-story AON Center is the third-largest building in Los Angeles.

    "The Los Angeles Police Department is aware of the posting made on social media... however, at this point we have not been able to find any credible threat against buildings in our city," the LAPD said. "Nevertheless, we are taking this very seriously and are working with our federal partners to coordinate any information that will lead to the source of the post."

    Police encouraged residents to report anything suspicions by calling (877) 284-7328.
