MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Two Minneapolis police officers and four civilians were injured Thursday in what officials are calling an active-shooter situation, law enforcement said.

Agents from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives responded to “an active shooting situation” and are “there to help expedite the firearms investigation piece of it,” said Ashlee Sherrill, a spokeswoman for the local field division.

Minneapolis police said in a Facebook post the incident was in the Whittier neighborhood of south Minneapolis. The post called it a “fluid situation” and urged residents to avoid the area.

Spokespersons for the police department and mayor’s office didn’t immediately return messages seeking additional information.
