    The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office says a man was shot in the head Wednesday evening on Shagawa Lake near Ely.

    Eighteen year old Ryan Byrnes was ice fishing with a friend when a bullet entered through the top of the fish house and struck Byrnes in the back of the head around 6:20 p.m. The .22-caliber bullet did not penetrate the skull, but did cause minor injuries. He received medical attention for his wound.

    Just before being shot, Byrnes said they had heard numerous gunshots coming from the north side of the lake.

    Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call the St. Louis County Sheriff's Department at 1-218-749-6010.

    Eyewitness News will update this story as more information becomes available.

    Could have been (high angle arc, or even a ricochet. Also, going through the fish house would slow it a bit too).

    Not sure if I should consider him lucky or unlucky... I guess it all depends on how you look at it :supergrin:
