Two women shot while hunting pheasant near St. Cloud

The two suffered serious injuries.

Two women required hospital treatment after they were shot while hunting pheasants in central Minnesota.

The women, 33-year-old Heidi Haskamp and 39-year-old Camille Carlin, both of Isanti, suffered wounds after being struck by shotgun rounds at the 19000 block of Hwy. 95 NE in Glendorado Township, east of St. Cloud.

They were members of a group of around 20 hunting pheasants, according to the Benton County Sheriff's Office.

The group had reached the edge of a field and were attempting to "reorganize their ranks" to move a different direction when a pheasant was flushed from the grass amongst them.

"As the pheasant flew in the area of Haskamp and Carlin, several members of the hunting party fired at the pheasant," the sheriff's office said.

Haskamp was struck by single pellet, while Carlin was struck multiple times in her back.

Both were taken to Fairview Northland Medical Center, in Princeton, with serious but not life-threatening injuries.

Police continue to investigate, but believe the injuries were caused accidentally.
