A Red Wing eighth-grader died this weekend after being shot while hunting in western Wisconsin.

Pierce County officials say Logan Hinrichs, 14, died of a gunshot wound while hunting in Maiden Rock, the Rochester Post Bulletin says. The incident remains under investigation and no details about how he was shot have been released.

According to his obituary, he died Sunday. A memorial service is set for Thursday at the First Covenant Church. A fund for the family to help cover funeral costs has been set up on the fundraising website GoFundMe.

He was in eighth grade at Red Wing High School. The Red Wing school district says it's implementing its crisis management plan to provide counselors and other support for students and staff, the Republican Eagle reports.

Maiden Rock is less than 20 miles from Red Wing.
