BALTIMORE (AP) -- Baltimore police are searching the headquarters of athletic retailer Under Armour after someone reported a suspicious person in the building.

Police spokesman Det. Brandon Echevarria says the SWAT team has evacuated employees who were inside the building Sunday.

Echevarria says police had not found anything by 5 p.m. Few other details were released.

According to the company's website, Under Armour's corporate headquarters is based in a warehouse-style building in south Baltimore. It is located along the water of Baltimore's Inner Harbor.

Under Armour made its name in making body-clinging "compression" clothing. It got into footwear in 2006 and has launched a line of running shoes in more recent years to compete with Nike and others. The company was founded in 1996 by a former University of Maryland football player.
