An Islamic State-supporting group shared a chilling photoshopped image to social media on Friday which appears to threaten a terrorist attack on a skyscraper in downtown Los Angeles.

In the foreground of the photoshopped picture, a camo-clad masked figure appears to be holding a furled Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) flag in one hand, while the explosion emanates from a high-rise behind them. They also appear to be wearing something akin to a suicide attack vest.

The SITE Intelligence Group, which tracks the social media and online activities of extremist groups, says that the image was shared to threaten attacks in the US “and the west.”

The LAPD tweeted that although it takes the social media post seriously, “at this point we have not been able to find any credible threat against buildings in our city.” The police force urged city residents to “heighten their awareness” and report any suspicious activity to an anti-terrorism hotline.

The key building depicted in the doctored image appears to be the Aon Building, a striking 62-story fixture in downtown LA. In a statement to Fox 11, Aon said that its security team “has confirmed with the Department of Homeland Security that this is a non-credible threat.”
