Brother accidentally shoots brother near Benson The Associated
BENSON, Minn. - A man accidentally shot and wounded his brother
while the two were deer hunting near Benson.
Swift County sheriff's authorities says 33-year-old Louis Burns of
Minnetonka and his 37-year-old brother -- Sam Burns from Sandy, Utah
-- were hunting in low-light conditions Monday evening when Sam
spotted a deer and fired a 12-gauge shotgun at it.
The slug missed and traveled nearly 500 yards over a hill, striking
Louis in the leg.
He and his brother were able to walk to their vehicle, and Sam
drove Louis to a hospital. Louis Burns was treated and released.
The sheriff's office and the Minnesota DNR investigated.
