While national lawmakers debate whether to remove Confederate names from military bases and people attack Confederate symbols, Albert Lea has had his fair share of controversy in recent years. Several authorities are at the scene of a shooting in which a gunman shot dead a police officer and two other people at an apartment complex in the city of Albert Lea, Minnesota. Police tell ABC 6 News that the suspect is being treated for unknown injuries at a nearby hospital and that residents of the rear apartment complex are currently barred from entering.
The other two fatalities were a 52-year-old man who was flown to University of Minnesota Medical Center in St. Paul for treatment for his injuries. Two other male victims were treated and flown to Rochester, and one was airlifted. The other was airlifted by the Albert Lea Police Department to a Rochester hospital for further treatment.
Most of the apartment building's residents, who had been evacuated so investigators could work through the crime scene, were already allowed to return to their homes. Some were able to get to safe areas and assess their injuries before being taken to hospitals.

The Standard trumpeted a visit by Albert Lea in 1879, in which he addressed his connections to the Confederates - in fact. He said his son Edward was a Union naval officer and had completed his basic training at Fort Benning, named after a Confederate general. When the Civil War broke out in 1861, he lived in St. Paul when he joined the Confederate Army while his sons were in the military. After the break of the rebellion, the service of the Confederacy was offered to be accepted, and they were accepted. In a speech he gave in May 1881 at the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Minnesota, LeA made no mention of a civil war.

Albert Lea is a town in the US state of Minnesota, on the border between Minnesota and Wisconsin, near the northern edge of the Great Lakes National Park. The city is named after William Albert, a topographer of the United States Dragoons who surveyed southern Minnesota and northern Iowa in 1835, including the current location of Albert Leas.
Lea was a Tennessee American who served as a Confederate lieutenant colonel before serving in the U.S. Army in 1835 surveying northern Iowa and southern Minnesota. The French cartographer Joseph Nicollet later renamed Lake Fox Lea, and the town that emerged on the lake in 1850 was also given this name. He served at Fort Des Moines, helped map the region, and was assigned to a topographical expedition in the Michigan Territory in 1840, which included parts of what is now northern Minnesota and parts of what is now southernmost Minnesota. The following year, he published a pamphlet that allegedly attracted a wave of settlers to the new Wisconsin territory and gave Iowa its name.
