BARRON COUNTY (WCCO) — A 43-year-old Turtle Lake man was arrested for allegedly shooting a woman Thursday afternoon, according to the Barron County Sheriff’s Department.

The Sheriff’s Department received a call at 2:11 p.m. from a 19-year-old Cumberland man who stated that Brad Bearheart had took his vehicle from him at gunpoint and fired a shot at him while he was running away. The victim was not injured.

Authorities say that while deputies were responding to the location, which is just south of Turtle Lake, the dispatch center received a call from a 46-year-old woman who said she was just shot by Bearheart. He had left the residence after the shooting.

After a search, Bearheart was found at 3:42 p.m. in his car in a ditch one mile out of Barron County, which is west of Cumberland. Responding agencies were able to talk him out of the car and he was taken into custody.

Once he is medically cleared, Bearheart will be held in the Barron County Jail awaiting formal charges from the Barron County District Attorney’s Office on attempted first-degree homicide charges.

The female victim is listed in stable condition.

    This shooting happened in Wisconsin, not Minnesota.

    You report that “..Brad Bearheart had took his vehicle…” Was that a quote, or just the reporter’s poor grammar?

      It was the reporter’s poor grammar. Even the local news are saving a buck by hiring the inept.

      I noticed that too, and it distracted me so much I didn’t bother reading the rest of the article.

    The victim is my cousin and is in critical but stable condition with 2 gunshot wounds. She’s hanging in there.

      I met her a while back helping her daughter move into her new apartment, she seems like a really nice lady. My prayers go out to her.
