Shots Fired, Bullet Holes Found in Cabin

On Sunday, July 31, at approximately 12:25 p.m., the Wadena County Sheriff’s Office received a report from a landowner who stated they discovered bullet holes in the walls of their cabin. 

When the deputy arrived at the cabin, which is located in section 24 of Bullard Township, the homeowners stated they heard a loud noise around 2:45 a.m., which they thought was fireworks or a semi-automatic weapon that was firing in a rapid fashion.  

They stated they didn’t think anything of it at the time until later in the day they noticed the holes in the cabin walls as well as  bullets on the floor of the cabin.

Law enforcement collected the shell casings that were located on County Road 30 north of Central Lakes College Staples Campus, as well as the bullets from inside the cabin.  These items will be processed for evidence.

This case is under investigation and anyone with any information is asked to call the Wadena County Sheriff’s Office at 218-631-7600.
