BARNESVILLE, MINN. -- A man shot himself in the wrist while hunting northeast of Barnesville this morning.

Kim Haggen, 52, was dear hunting when he tripped and fell, said Clay County Sheriff Bill Bergquist. Haggen was staying in Barnesville.

"Somehow, the barrel of the gun was pointed towards his wrist," Bergquist said.

According to Bergquist, the gun was able to go off because the safety was not on.

The Clay Country Sheriff, Life Flight, F-M Ambulance, and Hawley Emergency Response Team responded to the call around 8 a.m. this morning.

As of late morning, Haggen was still in the hospital. His condition is unknown.
