An off-duty sheriff's commander has been shot while scouting a hunting spot in St. Croix County.
Sheriff's officials in Washington Co., Minn., say Cmdr. Jerry Cusick was shot once with a long-barreled shotgun in the town of Somerset Tuesday about 7:30 a.m. by another hunter.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press says Cusick was taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul, Minn., where he is in good condition. Sheriff Bill Hutton says Cusick was not armed when he was shot. The shooting is under investigation.
