Bemidji Newspaper Building Damaged By Bullets

Police Car LightsBEMIDJI  (AP) — Police are investigating after shots were fired at the building housing The Bemidji Pioneer early on New Year’s Day.

The newspaper says three employees were working inside the building when it was struck by bullets early Saturday, but no one was hurt.

Pioneer employees heard one bullet break through a window. That bullet went into a wall.

The damage was reported to police. It then was discovered that another bullet went through a window in the main entryway but did not break through the doorway.

Police suspect the business was shot at by someone in a vehicle.

It’s unknown whether the Pioneer was targeted or if it was a random shooting.

No arrests are reported.
