AURORA, Colo. (AP) -

Police say a man walked into a Target store in the Denver suburb of Aurora and fired a single shot into the ceiling, but no injuries have been reported.
   
Aurora Police Sgt. Cassidee Carlson says the man fled after the incident Friday night.
   
Carlson says the man was wearing a ski mask. She says he walked to the store's pharmacy at about 6:30 p.m., pulled out a handgun and fired into the ceiling.
   
She says it's not clear if anything was taken.
   
No one answered the phone at the store or at Target's corporate press office. An email to the press office wasn't immediately returned.
