UPDATE: ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47)- Police have confirmed that one person is dead following a shooting in the area of the Quarters Apartments in Southeast Rochester.

The shooter ran away before being arrested.

The shots fired were reported just after 2 Friday afternoon.

The parking lot at the apartment is blocked off as police conduct their investigation.

Police say the building is mostly occupied by students.

The Rochester Public School District sent this message at 3:30 p.m.

Dear Families,
This afternoon there was an isolated incident that did not involve the Rochester Public School District, but is directly impacting the District’s bussing schedule. There was an incident in SE Rochester that required a large police presence. We worked with the individual schools that needed to delay bussing because of the area the busses were supposed to travel to. This is due to the safety of our students. As a result, we may have several late busses this afternoon (high, middle, elementary, and preschools) based on our tiered bussing system.

None of our students and staff were in danger during this time. We appreciate your patience with the bussing this afternoon.

Thank you,

Rochester Public Schools
