Residents return after evacuation following shooting


Police and a SWAT team evacuated residents of an apartment building in North St. Paul after an early-morning shooting on Sunday. The Pioneer Press reported nearby streets were also blocked off for a time as a safety precaution. KSTP reported that the residents have since been allowed to return to their units.

The station reported that a woman shot another woman at the apartment complex. North St. Paul Police said the suspect remains at large and is being sought. The station said the incident is believed to have started as a domestic dispute at around 4:40 a.m. Sunday.

The woman who was shot sustained a wound in the leg. She has been taken to a hospital and her injuries were not thought to be critical. FOX 9 reports that a mother shot her daughter in the disturbance.

Authorities evacuated the building about 9:30 a.m. Around 10:30 a.m., nearby resident Andrew Lane told the newspaper that he witnessed one SWAT team member fire roughly 20 rounds into the apartment building from the SWAT vehicle parked in the street.

Shortly before 11 a.m., at least two glass windows were shattered on the west side of the building and one on the east. Police robots were at the scene.

By 11:15 a.m., police had cordoned off the apartment building and were beginning to re-open blocked intersections. Two Metro Transit buses were brought in to shelter evacuated residents.
