Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - A Duluth man is recovering in the hospital, and another man from rural White Township is in jail, after a shooting on the Iron Range Friday night.

The Saint Louis County Sheriff's office responded to reports of a man that was shot at a rural White Township residence just after 10:30 Friday night.

The victim, a 20–year–old, was transported to Northern Pines hospital by a private vehicle, and was later air lifted to a Duluth area hospital for non life threatening injuries.

The suspect, a 46–year–old man, was located a short time later near the crime scene and apprehended by a K–9 unit after fleeing the scene on foot.

He was treated for minor injuries at Northern Pines hospital.

The suspect is being held in Saint Louis County Jail on first degree assault charges.

The incident remains under investigation at this time.
