HAY CREEK — A St. Paul man was injured Sunday in a hunting accident at the Hay Creek Recreation Area in Goodhue County.

Thao Yang, 28, was injured from “a stray shotgun blast,” according to a press release issued Monday by the Goodhue County Sheriff’s Office. The incident is believed to have happened at 1:50 p.m., though local authorities weren’t alerted to the situation until contacted by St. John’s Hospital in Maplewood at 5:19 p.m.

Yang was treated and released on Sunday, according to a hospital spokesperson.

It’s believed that Yang was hunting with another person when he was struck by pellets from a nearby hunter who was not part of their group.

“It’s one of those things of too much hunting in one place, I think,” said Kris Weiss, a sheriff’s office spokeswoman
