The Beltrami County Sheriff's Office has identified the man injured in an accidental shooting north of Fourtown, Minn., as Thomas Patrick Peterson, 23 of Anoka, Minn. He was flown to the University of Minnesota Hospital on Thursday evening and is in stable condition.

Gregory Robert Kolinski, 59, of Andover, Minn., was identified by investigators as the person who fired the shot causing injuries to Peterson. The two men were hunting with a party of four hunters in the North Beltrami unorganized townships when Kolinski admitted firing his shotgun at a flushed grouse in a thicket when Peterson was struck by the pellets.

The case is under investigation by the Beltrami County Sheriff's Office and Lake of the Woods Sheriff's Office.
