The discovery of a loaded shotgun hidden in the downtown offices of the Grand Forks Herald rattled the newspaper's staff Monday, leaving them and investigators wondering who stashed the gun there and why.


Employees cleaning a break room that has some kitchen facilities found the gun in a cabinet shortly before 10 a.m., Lt. Grant Schiller said.

"No notes, no threats, no nothing - just a loaded shotgun in a case in a closet in a common area, five rounds in it," Schiller said.
