One Shot, One Arrested on Fond du Lac Reservation
CLOQUET, Minn. (AP) -- One man was shot and a suspect was arrested after a shooting on a northern Minnesota Indian reservation.
Police and tribal officials say the shooting happened around 10 a.m. at a community center gymnasium on the Fond du Lac Band reservation, where a funeral was taking place. Interim Cloquet Police Chief Derek Randall said the injured man was shot in the head and was being treated at a hospital.
The shooting prompted lockdowns of tribal offices and the reservation school.
A woman answering the phone at the school told The Associated Press late Friday morning that everybody in the building was safe. She said the school was still in full lockdown and that no one was available to talk. She would not give her name.
The Fond du Lac band's reservation abuts Cloquet, near Duluth, and the band has about 4,200 members. The school includes children from preschool age through 12th grade.
