A woman has been taken into custody by police following a standoff in Inver Grove Heights Thursday afternoon, in which she is said to have been randomly firing shots.
KARE 11 reporter Lou Raguse tweeted that a woman had been handcuffed by police following a standoff at a home on 70th Street and Claude Avenue, which started following a "shots fired" report.
It prompted Inver Grove Heights Community Schools to take protective measures – including "sheltering" students in after-school programs and rerouting buses away from the area.
FOX 9 reports she was taken into custody about 5:15 p.m.
A nearby home daycare owner who lives behind the house where the standoff took place told the TV station she and the children were evacuated after they heard 4 gunshots.
KSTP reports that the woman fell down the front steps as she exited the home, with SWAT team members then going inside to conduct a search.
