Minn. deputy shoots, wounds Winona County suspect

ROCHESTER, Minn. — A Winona County man who was shot and wounded by an Olmsted County sheriff's deputy on Christmas Eve remains in the hospital.

A La Crosse Tribune report (http://bit.ly/YJn5YW ) says Winona County deputies responded Monday morning to a report of a domestic disturbance. The suspect fled, and authorities believed he was armed with a handgun.

Deputies in Olmsted County found the man hiding under a camper in Dover. He allegedly charged at officers, and a deputy fired a nonlethal round from a shotgun.

The suspect was injured and airlifted to a Rochester hospital.

His name and condition were not immediately released. Authorities have only identified him as a Winona County resident in his mid-20s.
