Two City of Minneapolis employees may have attended the pro-Trump rally and insurrection at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 6.
"The City received complaints involving two of its employees and the City is in the process of conducting an investigation," city spokeswoman Sarah McKenzie told Bring Me The News in a statement.
McKenzie said state law prohibits them from identifying them at this time, or what city department they work in.
"The City takes complaints against its employees very seriously, especially those that might involve crimes," the statement said. "The City is cooperating with federal authorities and urges the public to report any information it has to local and federal authorities."
According to the Minnesota Reformer, Minneapolis police spokesperson John Elder isn't aware of any officers or department staff attending the rally, but added: “We simply do not have the staffing to scour the social media pages of our staff. We will investigate any complaints brought forward."
The FBI tip line to report any information about the insurrection at the Capitol is 1-800-225-5324 or submit information, photos or videos online here.
Supporters of President Donald Trump, after months of Trump pushing false claims that the November election was stolen, gathered outside the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 while Congress certified the electoral college votes in favor of President-elect Joe Biden.
The crowd broke through the police cordon, assaulting officers in the process, and vandalized the Capitol while some sought leading legislators including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Vice President Mike Pence.
As of Monday, The Associated Press says more than 90 people have been arrested in connection to the violent insurrection that killed five people, including a police officer.
