DETROIT LAKES, Minn. (AP) — Authorities in northwestern Minnesota say a North Dakota man has died in an apparent accidental shooting.

Becker County authorities responded Thursday night to a call of a shooting near Floyd Lake. Deputies were told that two people were handling a .38 special handgun when it fired.

Reports says 70-year-old Arthur Martel, of Bismarck, North Dakota, was shot in the chest. He was taken to a hospital in Detroit Lakes, where he died.

The Becker County sheriff’s office is investigating.
