The gorilla is thought to have escaped from its enclosure at the central London zoo, with reports that the public have been locked in.
A zoo spokesman said: "ZSL is managing an incident on ZSL London Zoo."
Footage posted on social media from the zoo shows armed police walking through the zoo's grounds.
Scotland Yard said: "Police were called by security at Regent's Park at 5.17pm to reports of an ongoing incident.
"Officers are there to support ZSL staff."
