The Fillmore County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an accident that occurred in Arendahl Township Saturday night in which a 47 year old Utica man died.

According to Fillmore County Sheriff Daryl Jensen, Jeffrey Taylor and his two sons had been tending to his cattle at a property in Arendahl Township.

There was a bachelor – bachelorette party being held at the residence on the same property. Taylor and his sons were invited to stop by the party as they were leaving.

Sheriff Jensen said that some of the people from the party were shooting explosive targets for entertainment. Jensen said that just before 9pm a person shot at a staged target as several people stood by and watched. Taylor was standing in a group of people behind the shooter and was apparently struck by shrapnel.

Jensen said that Taylor immediately collapsed with a wound to his abdomen. He was driven to nearby location where the Rushford Ambulance and Mayo 1 helicopter attended to him. He was pronounced dead at that location.

Sheriff Jensen said that that case remains under investigation and an autopsy was to be performed on 6-16-13 (Sunday). The case is expected to be sent to the Fillmore County Attorney for review.
