UPDATED 10:20 A.M. - A 7-year-old boy is "doing fine" Thursday after he was shot in the head at a rural Skime, Minn., residence, said Capt. Tobi Eidsmoe of the Roseau County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities received a report Tuesday morning of a boy with a gunshot wound. The boy, who was shot once with a rifle, was taken by ambulance to LifeCare Medical Center in Roseau, Minn. He was then airlifted to MeritCare in Fargo.

The boy is being kept sedated in MeritCare's intensive care unit, Eidsmoe said.

The Sheriff's Office, which still is investigating the incident, would not release the boy's name or any other information about the shooting.

So far, the investigation suggests the shooting was accidental, Eidsmoe said.
