A Minnesota man scouting for elk in northern Arizona was shot in the hand by an unknown person, the Coconino County Sheriff's Office said.

Deputies and medical personnel met the victim at Interstate 40 and Welch Road on Sunday morning.

According to the victim, he came to Flagstaff to help his brother with an upcoming elk hunt. The victim said he was on a hillside located off of Welch Road and was using binoculars to search the terrain for elk.

The victim suddenly dropped the binoculars and realized his hand was bloodied, disfigured and severely injured, deputies said. The victim was unable to provide any information regarding a possible suspect or suspects.

Detectives said they are investigating the possibility that the victim was shot from a distance by another person who was hunting in the area.

People who were in the area of Welch Road on Sunday morning are asked to call the Coconino County Sheriff's Office at 928-774-4523.
