CUYUNA -- A 15-year-old boy was injured after accidentally being shot in the neck by a shotgun today in Rabbit Lake Township, northeast of Crosby, Crow Wing County Sheriff Dick Ross reported.
Ross said the shooting appeared to be a hunting accident. The 15-year-old boy and a 14-year-old boy came into a residence about 9:30 a.m. after hunting. When the 14-year-old boy removed his shotgun from its case it discharged, grazing the 15-year-old boy's neck, said Ross.

The boys names weren't immediately available.
