Minnesota courthouse shooting prompts upgrades

Email

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.
