Gunfire damaged two windows at a north Minneapolis day care when children were visiting Santa Claus inside the building early Tuesday evening, according to Minneapolis police.
The Santa visit was one floor down from the room where the windows were shot out, Minneapolis Police Chief Brian O'Hara said at the scene. He noted that some children had been in the affected room "immediately" before the shooting.
"This is absolutely outrageous. There were still plenty of children left in the day care," he told reporters at the scene Tuesday.
