A central Minnesota sheriff's office has upped the reward to find whoever shot and killed a hunter earlier this year.
According to a Facebook post, Morrison County Sheriff Shawn Larsen says they received some donations. Now the department is offering $30,000 for information that leads to the identification of the shooter. It had been $20,000 earlier this month.
Terrence Brisk’s body was found with a gunshot wound on Nov. 7. The 41-year-old from Belle Prairie Township died of blood-loss resulting from the wound, the medical examiner said.
Initially, the Morrison County Sheriff’s Office said the person who shot Brisk may not have realized what happened. Then earlier this month, the sheriff’s office said they’re considering his death as a homicide.
Authorities are also still looking for a Winchester Model AE 30-30 lever action rifle that belonged to Brisk. The rifle is said to be an older model, with a wooden stock and forearm with no sling attached.
The sheriff’s office says Brisk would carry the rifle in the woods while hunting, but they haven’t been able to find it.
Sheriff Larsen still believes this is an isolated incident and there is no known risk to the public.
Anyone with information about what happened is asked to contact the Morrison County Sheriff’s Office at 320-632-9233.
