Minnesota Deputy Shot with Arrow

A man was injured in an officer-involved shooting Thursday in Sauk Centre after a Stearns County (MN) sheriff’s deputy was shot in the arm by an arrow.

The suspect was taken to St. Cloud Hospital to have his injuries treated. The sheriff’s deputy, identified as Paul Orvis, suffered injuries that are not considered life-threatening.


The sheriff said that a stolen truck was driven into Sauk Centre shortly after 10 a.m. before the suspect ran into a residence.

When officers tried to clear the home, the suspect appeared with a compound bow and shot Deputy Orvis through the left arm with a target arrow.

The bow belonged to the homeowner.

The officers fired their weapons, striking the suspect multiple times. The suspect suffered wounds to the shoulder, buttocks and hand.
