CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A gunshot was fired into the One Wells Fargo Center building on South College Street in Uptown Charlotte on Tuesday. Police said there were no injuries. 

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department is investigating after a bullet shattered a window on the 16th floor of the building and then struck a wall. At the time of the shooting, nobody was on that floor of the building. 

The bullet was recovered from the scene, but CMPD did not provide any information about a suspect. 

The One Wells Fargo Center building is not owned by Wells Fargo, according to the corporation. The building is managed by Childress Klein, a real estate company. However, it is unclear what the 16th floor of this building is used for.
