ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -

The Olmsted County Sheriff's Office responded to a mobile home community late Tuesday afternoon for a reported accidental shooting.

It happened at 325 55th Street Northeast in Cascade Township.

Someone called authorities around 3:35 p.m. to report hearing gunshots.

The initial investigation determined that a shotgun was discharged from inside a mobile home, and the pellets from the shotgun round hit a nearby mobile home.

No one was hurt.

At this time, officials say the incident appears to be the result of the negligent handling of a loaded firearm.

Investigators have interviewed the persons involved and are still determining if any arrests will be made at the scene tonight.
