WINONA, Minn. (WCCO) – All government buildings in Winona were put on lockdown Wednesday morning after a report of shots fired at the Minnesota Department of Corrections Office, authorities said.

The call came in at about 10:46 a.m. When authorities arrived, they found out that a suspect had thrown several rocks through windows and that it was mistaken for gun fire. Authorities said nobody witnessed a suspect with a gun.

Officers located the suspect, 36-year-old Brian Carl Girtier of Winona, and arrested him without incident. No weapon was found on him and nobody was injured as a result of rocks being thrown through the windows.

Girtier is currently being held in the Winona County Jail, and his criminal charges could include first-degree burglary, terroristic threats, felony harassment, criminal damage to property, fifth-degree assault and disorderly conduct.
