Minnesota courthouse shooting prompts upgrades
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A courthouse shooting in northern Minnesota that left two men injured has prompted other courthouses in the state to beef up their security.
Anoka County is spending $50,000 to install bulletproof glass in offices where prosecutors and others work. Ramsey County now has armed deputies guarding offices.
A Minneapolis Star Tribune report says in several cases, the safety upgrades were already in the works but sped up following the December shootings.
