GRAND MARAIS, Minn. (AP) — Authorities say a shooting inside a northern Minnesota courthouse has injured three people, and a suspect is in custody.
State Public Safety spokesman Doug Neville says the three were shot Thursday afternoon at the Cook County Courthouse in Grand Marais (muh-RAY’), a small town near the Canadian border.
No details have been released about the suspect or the victims, but Neville says no other suspects are being sought. Neville also didn’t immediately know what may have led to the shootings.
He says two of victims are hospitalized in Duluth, about 110 miles southwest of Grand Marais, while the third was treated at a local hospital and released.
County Commissioner Fritz Sobanja says the two-story courthouse doesn’t have metal detectors, and he doesn’t believe visitors are searched before entering the building.
