According to St. Paul police, at around 11:25 a.m. they were called to a Caribou Coffee shop on the 2100 block of Ford Parkway on a report of a robbery.

Officers say a man robbed the store, fired a shot into the ceiling and left with an unknown amount of money.

A second armed robbery occurred at around 6 p.m. at a Jimmy Johns location on the 5300 block of West 84th Street in Bloomington.

Witnesses say two men came into the sub shop and ordered food. One of the suspects then pulled a gun, fired a single shot into the ceiling and demanded that employees empty the cash register.
