Minneapolis PD investigates shot in Franken window
Minneapolis (AP) — Minneapolis police are investigating a small bullet hole found in the window of the downtown Minneapolis condominium of U.S. Sen. Al Franken.
Police spokesman Sgt. Bill Palmer says the hole appears to have been made by a BB. Franken and his wife, Franni, found it recently upon returning to their condo after a few days away. Palmer says police don't know if the Franken residence was purposely targeted and "don't have much to go on."
Franken's office reported the incident to the U.S. Capitol Police which spokesman Marc Kimball says is a standard move for members of Congress. Kimball wouldn't say whether the office had received any prior threats.
