Security officers stand guard near the Federal Security Service building after a shooting incident, in Moscow, Russia, on December 19, 2019.

At least one FSB officer was killed during the shooting, Russia's top security agency said.

A member of Russia's top security agency was gunned down Thursday near its headquarters in Moscow, officials said.

Interfax news agency says President Vladimir Putin was attending a concert there at the time of the shooting.

AFP correspondents in the area however heard more gunfire and were told to move back by police.

Footage posted on social media showed automatic gunfire hitting the walls of the FSB's main building on Lubyanka Square in central Moscow.

One witness told Reuters he had seen the lifeless body of what he thought was a police officer lying in the street.

Several videos shot from different vantage points showed armed men running out of the office as gunfire rang out.

Russia's Investigative Committee launched a probe into the shooting and "attempt on life of a law enforcement employee", without giving the number of casualties.

The incident came on the eve of the Day of Security Service in Russian Federation which is celebrated on December 20.

The Health Ministry said that five other people were wounded in the shooting, including two security officers who were badly injured by the gunman.

"It was near the headquarters of the FSB, sometime after the end of the annual press conference of the Russian president".

The Russian leader had earlier been in central Moscow for his annual marathon news conference with journalists that lasted nearly four and a half hours.

The FSB, which Putin used to head, said several people had been wounded in the attack.

Putin was aware of the incident, Russian news agencies cited the Kremlin as saying.
