Mayo Clinic Health System Hospital in Mankato was placed in lockdown this morning due to a shooting near the facility.

According to a post on Twitter, a Mankato hospital was lifted shortly before 1 PM after Mayo Clinic officials received guidance from the Mankato Department of Public Safety. While the lockdown was in place, patients were still able to access the hospital after undergoing a screening process

An earlier post indicated the lockdown was due to an isolated shooting at a nearby apartment facility. Mankato authorities issued a "shelter in place" advisory for the same area shortly after 10 AM after officers responded to a report of a person with a gunshot wound. Another post indicating the perimeter had been cleared was issued around 1 PM.
