MINNEAPOLIS — A Hennepin County deputy saw a person fire a gun in north Minneapolis on Friday morning, leading to a standoff outside a residence that was resolved when a teenager was arrested.

The sheriff's office says the deputy saw the boy fire a gun and run into a home on the 1500 block of Olive Avenue North. Law enforcement officers secured the perimeter and WCCO crews at the scene observed a heavy law enforcement presence, including SWAT vehicles, outside a residence.

A 17-year-old boy was taken into custody without incident, the sheriff's office said. He was booked into a juvenile detention center for reckless discharge and weapons violations. 


No one was injured, the sheriff's office said.
