FRAZEE (KBRF) - An accidental shooting sends a rural Frazee man to the hospital.

The Becker County Sheriff's Office says 60 year old Lloyd Bertek was attempting to "de-cock" the hammer on his pistol Sunday afternoon when it accidentally went off and struck him in the left leg. Bertek was taken to the hospital in Detroit Lakes then flown to Fargo for treatment of his non-life threatening injury. His current condition is unknown.

The sheriff's office says the incident appears to be an accidental self-inflicted gunshot wound and is no longer under investigation. Assisting the sheriff's department were emergency personnel from Frazee Rescue, St. Mary's EMS, Sanford AirMed.
