The call came in to the fire department around 9 a.m.

When crews arrived at the scene, they put on their gas masks and made their way inside.

Once they got in, the firefighters noticed blood on the floor and called the police.

The fire department said when the police got there, the officers discovered a trail of bloody hoof prints through the building.

Following the trail, the officers turned a corner into an office and found a deer.

The animal charged the officers, and they were forced to shoot it.

Police said the deer had apparently crashed through a window elsewhere in the building and was unable to get out.
