One person is in custody after a reported shooting at Brunswick/Lund’s Boat Company in New York Mills on Thursday morning.
According to authorities, an active shooter was reported at the NY Mills plant around 7:20 a.m. A 21-year-old man is in Otter Tail County Jail pending criminal charges. Investigators say the lone suspect is a Lund employee who got into a verbal confrontation with another employee. He reportedly pulled a small caliber handgun and fired a round at a 31-year-old man.
Officers say the round did not hit the victim. The suspect then chased the victim outside where the victim was able to get away.
An employee held the door shut so the shooter was not able to get back into the building. Another Lund employee approached the suspect outside and he took off running, but was caught and restrained by employees before law enforcement arrived.
“Had in not been for the quick actions of Lund staff members, the outcome may have been much worse,” said the Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office.
Police took the 21-year-old man into custody and he was taken to the Otter Tail County Jail. No one hurt in the shooting.
