Police: Report of shots at Minneapolis building

Posted: Updated:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minneapolis police say they are checking a report of shots fired at a downtown office building.

Sergeant Steve McCarty says the call came Friday morning. He says officers are inside the building checking, but haven't found anything yet.

The building entrance was cordoned off by crime-scene tape, and several police officers could be seen inside with a police dog. One officer carried what appeared to be an assault rifle.

The 11-story building overlooks the pedestrian Nicollet Mall. It's across the street from Target's main headquarters, and last March the retailing giant signed a lease to take over all of its office space, according to the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal.

Target spokeswoman Jessica Deede said the company was "focused on taking care of our team" and deferred questions to police.
