Authorities say an hours-long standoff at a western Minnesota pharmacy has ended after SWAT team members swept the building and found no one inside.

     BRECKENRIDGE, Minn. (AP) - Authorities say an hours-long standoff at a western Minnesota pharmacy has ended after SWAT team members swept the building and found no one inside.  Breckenridge Police Chief Nate Harder says a deputy and police officer showed up Wednesday evening within 30 seconds of a call reporting an attempted armed robbery.
 
     KFGO-AM reports police believed the suspect remained inside Thrifty White Pharmacy. But Harder says there was mass confusion as customers and employees were fleeing, and the suspect apparently got away before officials secured the building.
 
     No shots were fired, and no one was injured.  Traffic in the area was blocked off during the standoff.  Harder says police will monitor surveillance footage and they have identified a "person of interest."
 
     Breckenridge is about 50 miles south of Fargo, North Dakota.

     SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The U.S. government has signed agreements with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to extend a land buy-back program for the reservation straddling the North Dakota-South Dakota border.
 
     The agreements announced Wednesday between the tribe and the Interior Department pave the way for the government to buy fractionated land parcels from their multiple owners and give them to the tribes.
 
     The program began with South Dakota's Pine Ridge Reservation and so far has spent $72 million to restore 203,000 acres of land to tribes.
 
     Officials say that Standing Rock is the second most fractionated location in Indian Country, with nearly 230,000 purchasable fractional interests.
 
     This spring, Interior Department officials said the program would expand to 21 reservations.
