Thursday lunch involving a man and woman nearly turned deadly in central Minnesota. 

According to the Sherburne County Sheriff's Office, deputies were sent to a home on the 18000 block of 246th Ave. NW in Orrock Township just after 12:30 p.m. on a report of shooting. 

A man told deputies he was eating lunch when he and his girlfriend got into an argument, which evolved into the woman allegedly threatening to kill him before getting a handgun and firing a shot at the man's head. 

The 54-year-old victim said the gunshot narrowly missed his head, after which he was able to wrestle the gun away from the woman and call 911. The sheriff's office says the bullet wound up going through a wall in the house. 

The woman, identified as 48-year-old Renee M. Kantor, of Orrock Township, has been charged with second-degree assault. 

The man was not injured.
