MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Latest on the investigation into the death of Prince (all times local):

8:45 p.m.

A search warrant reveals that a Minnesota doctor saw Prince twice in the month before his death — including the day before he died — and prescribed him medication.

The warrant says Dr. Michael Todd Schulenberg treated Prince on April 7 and April 20. The warrant was obtained by at least two news outlets before authorities moved to ensure it was sealed.

The warrant did not specify what medications were prescribed or whether Prince took them.

The warrant was carried out last Thursday at North Memorial Medical Center in the Minneapolis suburb of Robbinsdale.

A spokeswoman for North Memorial Medical Center said Schulenberg was a primary care physician at its Minnetonka clinic but that he no longer works for the health care system. No one answered the door at the doctor's home on Tuesday and phone messages left for him wasn't returned.

Officials at the scene would not respond to questions about what they were doing there. Carver County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Jason Kamerud told The Associated Press by phone that investigators are "being thorough."

A man wearing a sheriff's department badge got out of an unmarked vehicles and yelled, "Open the gates!" to the private security company inside. The vehicles then moved through the gates and went around to the door of Paisley Park. A siren briefly sounded, and then the cars disappeared from view.
