Update: Police say no shots fired at Target headquarters

Posted: Updated:

Update:

 

Minneapolis police say they haven't found any evidence to support a report of shots fired at downtown office building, but they haven't given an all-clear yet.
Officers were called Friday to an 11-story building that includes offices of Target Corp.
Police spokesman Steve McCarty says officers had found no victims and no suspect after a search of about an hour. But the search was continuing.
McCarty says the report was based on someone thinking they heard shots, and building security called 911.
People in the building were told to stay in place during the search.

Original Story:

Police are on the scene at Target Headquarters in downtown Minneapolis after a report of shots fired Friday morning.

 

Police spokesman Sergeant Steve McCarty confirms that a call of shots fired came in from the Retek building, 50 South 10th Street at 11:10 a.m. That building is part of the downtown Target campus. SWAT teams are on the scene, but there is no confirmation of an active shooter on the loose.

Armed officers and K-9 teams are going floor to floor looking for an armed person but so far have found nothing.

Target spokesperson Molly Snyder tells KARE 11 that there has been a "security incident" declared in the building and that all employees have been ordered to stay inside their offices until the situation is resolved.

Workers inside the building are tweeting that they are barricaded in their offices. Tanya Hnastchencko is hunkered down with two co-workers in an office on the 5th floor of the Retek Building. She tells KARE 11 that they received orders to barricade themselves moments after police got the original shots fired call.

Tanya's father works on the 11th floor of the Retek building. A co-worker who works on the 10th floor told him that he heard something that sounded like shots.

Dispatchers say that officers on the scene called in a code 4, which means that the situation is under control but that is not confirmed.

KARE 11 has multiple crews headed to the scene and will have the latest as it becomes available.
