We have new information from Red Lake Public Safety Director Bill Brunelle:
No officers were injured and no other injuries have been reported. Four occupants left the house and Red Lake Police presume three others are still in the house armed. According to Director Brunelle, Red Lake officers responded to two calls of disturbance at a house on Indian Service 40 in Redby last night. Right before officers left the scene after the second call, shots had been fired.
