Argument leads to gun pulling at Lund Boat Company in Otter Tail County, suspect restrained by employees
OTTER TAIL COUNTY, Minn. (FOX 9) - Employees safely restrained an employee who pulled a gun on another at a boat company in Otter Tail County until police could arrive Thursday morning.
According to the Otter Tail County Sheriff's Office, police responded to an "active shooter" at the Lund Boat Company in New York Mills, Minnesota, around 7:20 a.m.
A 21-year-old male employee was in a verbal confrontation with a 31-year-old employee when he pulled a small caliber handgun, and fired a round at the 31-year-old man, but it did not strike him, according to a police statement.
The alleged gunman chased the man outside and fired another round. An employee blocked the door, so he was unable to go back into the building. The 21-year-old fled, but another employee caught and restrained him until law enforcement arrived.
The alleged gunman was arrested and transported to the Otter Tail County Jail pending criminal charges. No injuries were reported.
