Two men reportedly shot each other Sunday afternoon near Hinckley, according to the Pine County Sheriff's Office. 

Both men were airlifted to the hospital to undergo surgery and are expected to survive. 

Responders were called to a home on Cedar Creek Road around 1:30 p.m. on Sunday and discovered two men with gunshot wounds, according to the sheriff's office.
