| No Comments

Police have given the all clear as no evidence was found of a shooting reported in a downtown Minneapolis building Friday morning, according to CBS Minnesota.

Reports if shots fired came from the Retek Building on 10th St. and Nicollet Ave. around 11 a.m., according to Sgt. McCarty of the Minneapolis Police Department as reported by CBS.

A worker within the building told CBS that people were locking themselves in their offices after the shots were heard, and sirens were sounding to signal a possible shooter inside the building.

According to MPR, police placed the building on lockdown over the lunch hour and searched for evidence of gunfire, bullets, or potential victims. After nothing was found, the lockdown was lifted.
