St. Cloud police have evacuated an apartment building and are asking the public to stay away from the 2700 block of 16th Street South.
The Violent Offender Task Force was attempting to execute a search warrant at an apartment, police said, when a man threatened officers and closed the door. Then the man fired a gun inside the apartment. No other shots have been fired, and there are no known injuries, Assistant Police Chief Jeff Oxton told Times journalists on the scene.
The apartment building has been evacuated, Oxton said.
SWAT is on the scene, along with a mobile command post and at least two St. Cloud Police Department armored vehicles. Drones are being used in the area.
Negotiations are ongoing, police said.
Oak Grove Road and Goettens Way are closed in the area.
