Minneapolis police investigating after group accesses Edison High School

Minneapolis Public School (MPS) district officials say police are investigating an incident after they say a group of people who weren’t students accessed one of the schools Wednesday morning.

According to a district spokesperson, a group of young people gained entry to Edison High School, but left without incident after they were “immediately approached by school staff.”

District officials didn’t provide a time for when the incident happened, and didn’t provide a description of the people who accessed the building.

A spokesperson says the district is working with Minneapolis police as the investigation continues.

MPS leaders say their top priority is making sure everyone who is inside a school within the district is safe.
