Multiple people were injured and one person has been taken into custody after a shooting at a health clinic in Minnesota on Tuesday, February 9, according to local authorities.
The violent incident took place at the Allina clinic in Buffalo, a city of about 15,000 people roughly 40 miles northwest of Minneapolis.
Kelly Prestidge, an office manager for the Buffalo Police Department, told The Associated Press one person was taken into custody, though it remains unclear if that individual was the shooter. She also said she didn’t have further information on the attack, including how many people were shot or if anyone was killed.
Police chief Pat Budke told local TV station KSTP that the shooting happened inside the Allina Clinic Crossroads campus. He said the situation was contained shortly before noon and that there was no further threat to the public’s safety.
While Budke concurred there are victims, he reiterated, "We don't know of any fatalities right now." He also said the Minneapolis bomb squad is heading to the scene to check and clear the site where the incident occurred.
A spokeswoman for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms confirmed the agency had a crew headed to the scene.
Allina Health, a nonprofit health system based in Minneapolis, owns or operates 12 hospitals and more than 90 clinics in Minnesota, according to the company's website.
