MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Police in Rochester were searching for hours after a young man claimed he planted bombs and harmful substances around the city.
According to KIMT, the incident began at 3:10 a.m. Monday when 19-year-old Kyle Miller had a rifle pointed at his head in a parking lot at St. Mary’s Hospital. He told responding officers he’d placed the harmful materials in schools and churches around Rochester.
