The release stated there were multiple people within the residence at the time of the incident, but no injuries were reported.

Officers determined that the projectiles came from an adjacent residence at 2328 Clayton Ave.

When interviewing two people at that residence, officers learned they had discharged a small caliber rifle within their residence during what they described as “target practice.”

Police conducted a search warrant at the house and found and seized a firearm and ammunition that was believed to be used.

Police arrested Shell Paw Bor and transported her to the Freeborn County jail.

The Police Department stated this is an isolated incident and does not believe there was any intent on harming others.

Albert Lea police were assisted by the Freeborn County Sheriff’s Office at the scene.
