HENNING, Minn. (AP) — A 51-year-old woman is accused of pulling a shotgun on her 25-year-old daughter during an argument in northwest Minnesota.


The daughter called authorities from the outbuilding of a rural Henning home. She said she had been upstairs in the home, cleaning with a bucket of water, when her mother came upstairs and the two had an argument.

The daughter told officers that her mother threw the bucket and water at her — hitting her in the shoulder with the bucket — and then pointed a shotgun at her and demanded that she leave or she would shoot her.

KBRF-AM ( reports the mother was arrested on suspicion of second-degree assault. She was in the Otter Tail County Jail on Friday.
