SAXON, Wis. - Authorities say a Minnesota man was shot and killed in an apparent hunting accident in northwestern Wisconsin.

The Iron County Sheriff’s Office says dispatchers received a call just before 5 p.m. Tuesday in the town of Saxon. The caller reported an accidental discharge of a firearm, which left one man with serious injuries.

When responders arrived on the scene, they tried to revive the 65-year-old man but were unsuccessful. KBJR-TV reports that the victim was pronounced dead at the scene. The incident remains under investigation.

Saxon is about 95 miles east of Duluth, Minnesota.
