Correction: Rockville Shooting story

ROCKVILLE, Minn. (AP) — In a story Oct. 22 about a suspect accused of fatally shooting a man in Rockville, Minn., The Associated Press misspelled the last name of the man who was killed. He was Jeffrey Schutz, not Jeffrey Schultz.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Homicide suspect transferred to HCMC

Homicide suspect shot by Stearns County deputy transferred to Hennepin County Medical Center

ROCKVILLE, Minn. (AP) — A man who was shot by a deputy in the central Minnesota town of Rockville has been transferred to a Minneapolis hospital.

Twenty-eight-year-old Marcus Michael Barshaw, of Walker, had been in critical condition at St. Cloud Hospital on Sunday. He was transferred to Hennepin County Medical Center, where a spokeswoman said Monday she had no information on his condition.

Stearns County Sheriff John Sanner tells the St. Cloud Times ( ) he has a deputy stationed outside Barshaw's room at HCMC.

Authorities suspect Barshaw shot 30-year-old Jeffrey Schutz, of Rockville, early Sunday and fled. Sanner says a deputy later shot Barshaw three times after he refused to put down his gun.

Charges have not been filed, and the case remains under investigation.
