Walker man involved in Rockville shooting transferred to HCMC

ROCKVILLE (AP) — A homicide suspect 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 Walker shot 30-year-old Jeffrey Schultz, of Rockville, early Sunday and fled. Sanner says a deputy later shot Walker three times after Walker refused to put down his gun.

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