Standard operations at MSP Airport were not affected, the FBI reported.

“Air traffic control functions are not located in this building and have not been affected,” read the FAA’s statement in response to the incident. “The FAA is investigating, and is cooperating with other investigating authorities, including the Department of Homeland Security.”
