BEMIDJI, Minn. (AP) — The Bemidji Pioneer building has again been hit by gunfire.

The bullets damaged glass in the paper’s front entryway sometime Sunday. The paper says employees were likely in the building at the time of the shooting.

No one was injured in the latest incident and a similar one on New Year’s Day. Bemidji Police Chief Gerald Johnson says bullets from both shootings have been sent to the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension for analysis. Johnson says no suspects have been identified.

Pioneer Publisher Dennis Doeden says security measures have been implemented to ensure employees’ safety.
